    Larry Gets It Done a Year After Knee Replacement. An interview with Larry Sallings.













    We are pleased to share this interview from The Bee's Knees Podcast and KNEE RADIO 1. Podcast host PJ Ewing interviews Larry Sallings from Texas. PJ and Larry explore getting back to life a year after TKA.













    TKA, Infection, A Failed Recovery... then X10 Therapy

    in 2020 Larry Sallings was faced with a knee that was in need of replacement. He proceeded with the procedure and then "the fun began." It turned out that Larry's knee became infected which severely compromised his recovery from the surgery. It took a year for Larry to find the X10. His range of motion was non-functional. This was not his plan after a big event like a knee replacement.

    Podcast - The Bee's Knees

    Stories of knee recovery, therapy and life after surgery.













    Preparing for Knee Surgery













    There are many things you can do prior to surgery to help yourself be as prepared as possible and therefore help to make your recovery process as easy as possible. I have for you here and now what you need to know before knee replacement surgery, broken up into three parts. Preparing for Knee Surgery:



    * Part 1 Prepare Your Body

    * Part 2 Prepare Your Home

    * Part 3 Make a Plan



    To subscribe to our exclusive free Knee Surgery Preparation Email Series click here: Pre-hab Pre Surgery email series

























    Make Sure You Are Ready for What's Coming

    Preparation is advised when it comes to knee replacement surgery. It’s not hard to be ready. If you bookmark this page and return to it throughout the weeks prior to surgery you will be ahead of the game. Download the checklist, print it out, use it. Do the Pre-hab exercises that you can (never pushing yourself into pain). Get your home ready. None of this stuff is hard to do and it can be so valuable for you when it comes to your recovery afterwards.
