How Long Does The Knee Recover After Repositioning Surgery?
How long is the recovery, I have been 23 days after repositioning and still walking using a knee brisket + a cricket stick
Thank you for the question.
Knee dislocation can be accompanied by tears in ligaments in the knee, such as collateral ligament, anteriordanposposiorligament (ACL / PCL). This knee dislocation can be caused by trauma, traffic accidents, or accidents during sports. Management of knee dislocation by orthopedic specialists can be reduced reduction, namely closed repositioning with manual manipulation of the knee joints and legs or with reduction, namely surgery and correcting broken bones.
Keep in mind the type of reposition made to your knee to find out the healing time on your knee. But in general the healing time requires several months to a year, or even more if there are complications. Keep in mind even though the healing period is over, the knee may not function as before the trauma. You are advised to consult a medical rehabilitation specialist and perform physiotherapy to be able to monitor the progress of your knee healing, when is the best time for you to be able to remove the knee brace, and do exercises to mobilize your knee again so that knee healing can be optimal.
Things you can do to help heal your knee:
Exercise knee mobilization, make it a habit to move the knee slowly and routinely every day to avoid muscle stiffness. Avoid strenuous activities or sports that require excessive knee work, such as basketball, tennis, or soccer. Change the bandage regularly and make sure it is dry. Inadequate intake of nutrients and fluids, eat foods that contain high protein such as eggs, cork fish, and drink 2-3L per day. Hopefully this information can help.
