Scar Tissue AFTER Knee Surgery

Scar tissue AFTER knee surgery can be quite a painful experience and difficult to over come. There are two specific approaches for eliminating scar tissue after knee surgery. There is both a direct and an indirect approach. The direct approach tends to be painful where the indirect approach focuses all on comfort.

Scar tissue after knee surgery can last for months and even years after your knee begins to heal. Having a solid strategy to break down and eliminate scar tissue is important to gain back full flexibility and mobility of the knee joint back.

There are two main approaches for breaking down scar tissue and I believe it’s important to know both and understand both as you move towards reducing the scar tissue in your knee after knee surgery…

The 2 Main Approaches for addressing scar tissue after knee surgery:

1.) The direct approach for addressing scar tissue after knee surgery is the most common and well known approach to break down scar tissue. It tends to be painful using a knuckle, walking on the knees or using a hard object to press into the painful area in the hopes to break down the scar tissue.

2.) The indirect approach for addressing scar tissue after knee surgery is not nearly as common and is a more subtler and gentler approach for breaking down scar tissue. This approach is based on the body’s innate healing ability to unwind and let go of the tension that is causing the scar tissue to form and protect the knee.

The following videos goes into more details on the 2 approaches and gives a strategy for addressing scar tissue in the knee after knee surgery…

Coupled with comfort this combination creates the shortest distance between a life riddled with pain to a physical life fully mobile and self expressed.

Hi there I had a TKR 2.5 yrs ago and doc reopened it up and did the kneecap 8 weeks ago. I am only able to bend it about 50-60% , it hurts all the time! The surgeon wants to do a manipulation under anesthesia to reduce the amount of scar tissue. I am afraid of the pain afterwards. I am going to PT and it seems to be worse after that. Is this a good idea? Any help would be appreciated, thank you 😊

Hi Bill
I had a knee surgery 6 years ago, it was an open synovectomy to remove PVNS. Over the last year I’m experiencing knee pain on the joint line when bending, the whole area is very sensitive to touch and also have pain going down the calf. The especialisr have done an MRI and they say is scar tissue around the tendons. Can anything be done to decrease the pain?

Hey Bill, I had ACL surgery 3 weeks ago using a hamstring graft. I’m going to physical therapy twice a week; however, in the past few days, my ability to do range of motion exercises has significantly decreased due to sharp pain around the outside of the knee as soon as I attempt to bend my knee past 20 degrees. Earlier this week, I would have pain the first few times I brought the knee up, but I could eventually stretch it out. Now I’m at the point I can’t even do that. I have one scar tissue bump at… Read more »
