Total Knee Replacement – Rehab Exercises over 6 weeks Post Op
We have been seeing an increase in patients coming through our physiotherapy clinics who are struggling with pain, stiffness and walking after having a knee replacement over 6 weeks ago.
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 after 6 weeks following a knee replacement.
Please be aware of your body and take advice from your GP before exercising or send an email to (firstname.lastname@example.org) for advice and guidance. When exercising do not push into sharp pain.
|Quarter Squat: Hold for 5 seconds Repeat 10 times.
| Knee Extension: Repeat 10 times.
|Step Up: Repeat 10 times.
