People in need of a new knee joint often wonder how far their knee will bend after surgery. Researchers have new insights. They found that a major influence on how far you can bend your knee after knee joint replacement is the amount of knee bend you have before surgery. These researchers studied 4,727 knees before, during, and after knee joint replacement. They measured the amount of bend (flexion) in each patient at six months and one, three, five, and seven years after knee replacement. Increases in knee motion stopped after three years. This finding supports results from other studies. No matter what kind of arthritis the patient had or how badly the knee was lined up, the amount of knee flexion before surgery was still the number one way to tell how much knee bend would be present after the surgery. Patients with less than 90 degrees of knee bend before surgery were more likely to have a poor result. Know that if you're in need of a new knee joint, you have an edge in telling how...

That said, what you describe could be any number of issues. There's simply no way for anyone to explain why this is happening...
Knee osteoarthritis is a very common problem. As I have reviewed in previous blogs, and as I detail in my book, The Arthritis Handbook: Improve Your Health and Manage the Pain of Osteoarthritis , treating osteoarthritis should include several basic steps, including an appropriate anti-inflammatory diet, exercises, and often supplements. Exercising should ideally include three parts:

Always check with your doctor prior to starting any new exercise program to make sure it is safe for you to participate. In this blog, I am going to review some basic, high yield stretching exercises that are geared particularly towards patients with knee osteoarthritis. Please check with your doctor before trying any of these exercises to make sure it is safe for you to do so.
