Hi Everyone- First post in this group (been a member of quit smoking for months)
I am 6 weeks post op from a partial knee replacement, I was diagnosed with CRPS at my 6 week post op appointment. My ortho surgeon was not very helpful. At least 3 times he said "the knee's fine, this pain isn't my field of study" So he wrote a script for Gabapentin and also for PT and sent me on my way.
My question: for anyone suffering with this disease- what exactly am I getting PT for? I've called several PT groups asking about PT for CRPS and I am not really getting any cohesive therapy protocol. Its all over place some say gentle therapy another say they go intense. Any help will be appreciated.
