Physical therapy exercises after surgery help strengthen your joints and will be recommended by the surgeon. 20 to 30 minutes of guided physical therapy will help restore function sooner. Daily activities like bathing and getting dressed should not be a major problem, but bending of the knee might be difficult initially due to pain and swelling. Full extension of the knee will be possible after 10 days.
Pain experienced after orthopedic surgery usually lasts for around 2 to 3 months but could extend up to 6 months in some cases. Complete and total recovery happens after 12 months, but you will be able to resume your daily activities sooner but in a controlled and monitored manner.
Total knee replacement usually lasts for 20 years or longer and partial knee replacement lasts around 10 years. These replacements are made up of metal and plastic and will eventually wear out with time. While they are designed to last for a long time, knee replacements are not meant to last forever.
Postoperative pain following total knee replacement surgery usually lasts for a couple of weeks. Mild swelling is expected for 2 to 3 weeks after surgery and is a normal development. Most patients achieve normal function of the knee by the end of 3 months. Regular guided physiotherapy provided by our specialized team helps speed up recovery and restore function.
Knee replacement surgery is done to restore the normal function in diseased knee joints. The replacement joint is made up of metal alloy caps and helps replace damaged knee cartilage. This artificial joint is attached to the ends of the thigh and calf bones by the use of implants that replace damaged cartilage and bone.
Recovery from joint and bone treatment usually ranges from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, depending on the severity of the condition. Restrictions in strenuous activities will be in place in the initial phase of recovery until the previous lifestyle is restored. The entire post-recovery care and therapy will be explained in detail by the concerned surgeon.
Some of the most common and evident warning signs of joint problems are swelling around the joint, stiffness, redness, if the joint is warm to touch, loss of range of regular movement in the joint, and locking. If you happen to experience these symptoms please reach out to us at the earliest for an appointment.
