Joint Replacement. Post Isometric Relaxation Part 2. Restoration of range of range motion (Lewit/Janda techniques)
In general, the statistics related to successful outcomes of knee joint replacement surgeries, is exceptionally good. However, the statistics related to clinical outcome, including restoration of functional activities and capabilities, and knee pain, are much less successful.
The successful post surgical outcomes of functional activities and decrease of knee pain sensation, doesn't depend in successful work of orthopedic surgeons alone. In most cases it depends on immediate intensive postsurgical rehabilitation efforts; mainly, on fast improvement of range of motion, including intensive scar tissue management and lymphedema management.
In this clip, Boris proposes special strategies, including myofascial mobilizations, lymphedema size management, orthopedic massage, trigger point therapy, as well as post isometric relaxation techniques as it was proposed by Karel Lewit and Vladimir Janda. Also at this clips Boris proposes ice massage techniques, and provides special instructions on the subjects.
