Total Knee Replacement-At Home Therapy

Following Total Knee Replacement, continuing therapy at home is very important. You will be given a home exercise program during your time in therapy to perform on days that you are not in clinic. These exercises help to reinforce the progress you make during therapy and allow you to progress to more difficult exercises while in clinic.

Total Knee Replacement In Clinic

On your first day of therapy, you will meet with a Physical Therapist to evaluate your post-surgical knee. This will include assessment of your surgical incision, any bandage changes per your doctor, assessment of swelling, and range of motion measurements. We can even help your physician monitor your blood clotting time to regulate medication which decreases chances of blood clots.
