Re: Can therapy be too agressive?

You did not say what and how much therapy you are receiving. Therapy to a total knee replacement can be very painful, especially if they have to do a lot of stretching because your knee will not straighten all the way or it will not bed to at least 90 degrees. Are you using ice? Ask your PT if estim is right for you. If in doubt, ask to speak to the PT manager and discuss tx sessions and if it is appropriate.
