Just a quick question for any doctors or physical therapists out there. I'm almost three months out from ACL surgery (hamstring graft) and meniscus repair, and I've developed some scar tissue near my patella. My physical therapist is mildly concerned with it and told me to continue massaging the area (which I've been doing since day one after surgery).
I know that if I don't get rid of it, it can cause some problems on the long term. Can somebody help me by giving some tips/guidelines for massaging it?
Is there anything else that can be done to break it up? My PT today used this metal file-looking thing (shaped like a tongue depressor) and rubbed the area with it. She said that would help break it up, but I only see her once per week. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
