Total Knee Replacement – Rehab Exercises

Jan 30, 2020

What exercises should I do immediately after my Knee Replacement?

We have been seeing more and more patients coming through our private physiotherapy clinics in Havant and Rowlands Castle who are struggling with pain, stiffness and walking after having a knee replacement.

Patients we see have been given exercises to do but limited guidance about how to do them, how many to do and how to progress on when they feel easy.

We sit down with every patient to discuss goals, what they want to be able to achieve, then we provide a full assessment looking at movement, strength, balance, we also look to see if there are any areas of muscle tension/tightness.

Here are some exercises to do immediately following a knee replacement.

Please be aware of your body and take advice from your GP before exercising or send an email to (enquiries@physio-logical.net) for advice and guidance. When exercising do not push into sharp pain.

 

If you have had a total knee replacement and are still struggling with pain or stiffness and are still not back doing what you want to, or are not sure what exercises you should be doing, then please get in contact with us so we can help you. Email enquiries@physio-logical.net, call 07835 712306 or book online.
