Comprehensive Total Knee Replacement Recovery Program at Physioheal Physiotherapy, Gurgaon

Introduction to Total Knee Replacement (TKR)

Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) or Total Knee Replacement (TKR) is a commonly performed orthopedic surgery. It involves replacing damaged knee joint surfaces with metal and polyethylene plastic components, aimed at reducing pain and enhancing function. At Physioheal Physiotherapy in Gurgaon, we provide a specialized Total Knee Replacement Recovery Program for optimal post-surgery rehabilitation.

Understanding Total Knee Replacement

  • Symptom Relief: Total knee replacement offers relief from pain, stiffness, and limited function.
  • Long-Term Success: Commitment to a comprehensive physiotherapy program ensures successful surgery and extended lifespan of the knee replacement.

Anatomy of the Knee Joint

The knee joint consists of the femur (thigh bone), tibia (shin bone), and patella (kneecap). The joint surfaces are covered with cartilage, which allows smooth movement.

  • Surgical Process: Incision, bone shaping, insertion of metal caps, and placement of plastic spacer.
  • Post-Surgery: Pain, swelling, and stiffness are common immediate effects.
