Why does my knee oknly bend to 65 degrees?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

Had Total knee almost 2 yrs ago . Never got good bend never got 90 degree.Had extensive PT.I am young and active . I go to the gym 5-6days a week. Had 2nd opinion because my Dr suggested it. 3 suggestions: 1) Redue the whole thing 2)Try and cut and release some of the tendons or whatever is stopping bending 3) Go to the ;hosp and have Spinal kor epidural and force bend.

Impossible to say without an examination. Sometimes a simple manipulation under anesthesia is enough.
