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.
Paul Whitaker is a patient at our Shelbyville Clinic. His left knee had been damaged by arthritis which made it difficult to play golf, walk normally, or exercise at the gym. Recommended by his physician, Paul started physical therapy with the goal of 100% recovery and freedom from pain. He just wanted to get back to his normal active lifestyle.
