Neuromuscular pain: The change in pain with range of motion a little bit reassuring that it is muscle with some nerve involvement that increases with movement. I have that before with all the stress and the "knots". Still due to your risk and previous event a good exam by your pmd to assure no recurrence is indicated, maybe a cxr. ...Read more

How long would it take to get back full range of motion after ACL reconstructive surgery?

How long would it take to get back full range of motion after ACL reconstructive surgery?

Can take weeks: Maintaining full knee extension is far more important after acl surgery. Flexion usually advances toward normal over the first 1-3 wks. Full flexion, however, may take more than a month as any residual significant swelling will make absolute full flexion difficult to regain until the swelling completely resolves. Concomitant meniscal repair may purposefully limit flexion to 90 degrees for 6 weeks. ...Read more

Slept on shoulder funny , pain persisting for 4 weeks now , X-ray came back normal..What's going on? Still have full range of motion

Muscle strain: The cause of a soft tissue injury or pain coming from an injured nerve will often not show up on a plain xray. Multiple syndromes of soft tissue injury are possible, especially if there is a history of rotator cuff injury in past. Nerve impingement syndromes also may explain this type of pain. It may be possible to narrow down the cause with a detailed physical exam. See your doctor if it persists. ...Read more

Complicated: You are very young to have undergone a knee replacement surgery. Having said that, there are certain people that need them because of severe trauma that caused premature arthritis. Your goals must be realistic -- you will not get full motion back like a native knee. Other things to consider is if the knee was implanted properly. Maybe get a second opinion. ...Read more

6 years s/p a plantar release, osteotomy and 2 tendon transfer to correct a cavovarus deformity. Why don't i have full range of motion back yet?

6 years s/p a plantar release, osteotomy and 2 tendon transfer to correct a cavovarus deformity. Why don't i have full range of motion back yet?

After 6 years,: you've likely maxed out on what you'll get out of having the procedure performed. With most surgical procedures, full benefits are obtained after 12-14 months. It all depends on exactly what was done, the therapy ordered and how hard you worked at therapy. I'd be more concerned with any remaining pain or disability than specifically the range of motion. If you don't have orthotics, you should ...Read more
