Re: Monteggia variant with orif recovery

Who's to say what is normal, but is your PT doing massage? When there is injury scar tissue forms pretty fast. During recovery PT's do deep tissue massage to break up the collagen (scar tissue formation) and to realign the collagen. Also, are they doing joint mobs? All things to consider.

Each Universal Patella Stabilizer comes with a donut and horseshoe shaped buttress. These buttresses can be trimmed to customize the patellar support.
