Flexion/extension contracture

Having had a TKR (total knee rplacement) and having had much improvement for a year. Stiffness unexpectedly started about a year after tkr and has been progressing for the last year. I have been told that I am 1% of population that suffers from an over reaction to surgerg and this creates an abundance of scar tissue in and around the knee. Is there anything that I can do about this?

Kind regards,
