Exercises To Recover From Knee Replacement Surgery

It is important to resume physiotherapy after a knee replacement surgery. The patient must be motivated. Physiotherapy is important to reduce pain, increase range of motion and strengthen the muscles. Physiotherapy includes thigh squeezes or quadriceps exercising, hamstring and calf muscle exercising. The patient must also progressively increase the duration of walking. Physiotherapy is also important for patients who are in the early stages of arthritis. People in the first three stages of arthritis should continue physiotherapy. For people who are advised surgery, it is important to start physiotherapy before surgery so that patient regains the range of motion and strengthens the muscles.
