Chronic knee pain is a leading cause of musculoskeletal disability in the United States. This condition often leads to TKA (also known as total knee replacement), which is the most commonly performed orthopedic surgery in the lower extremity. Physical Therapists play a huge role in helping patients pre and post TKA.
Prior to the surgery, PT’s help patients design a preoperative exercise program including strengthening and flexibility to improve outcomes post surgery. Post surgery, PT’s help patients walk with a normal gait pattern, regain full range of motion of the operative knee, improve balance and proprioception, and improve lower extremity strength to help patients return to their normal life activities without any limitations.
