Explore The Best Choice For Your Knee Pain Relief

Updated: Dec 25, 2023

To gain knee pain relief remains a top priority if you are experiencing discomforts associated with this complex joint. We at ABTP Sportsmed believe in alleviating the discomfort from your life forever with the help of expert solutions. 

How Do You Know If Total Knee Replacement (TKR) is The Right Choice For You?

  • Arthritis: In this condition, particularly, osteoarthritis, the cartilage begins to damage. Over time, the wear and tear of the cartilage leads to bones rubbing directly against each other causing friction, pain, and inflammation.

  • Constant Pain: Constant knee pain causes muscle imbalances and gait abnormalities. The individual also experiences persistent pain while resting, and even the pain medication offers limited relief. This moment calls for a TKR.

  • Limited Mobility: Knee pain is known to impact your daily activities, including walking, climbing stairs, and getting up from chairs. With such limitations, TKR becomes a necessary call.

What’s the way to get prepared for a TKR?

Prehab - Tune Your Body for a Smooth TKR

If an athlete needs to warm up for a marathon, then, even surgery is the key to faster and smoother recovery. Herein, the role of prehabilitation begins.

 Pump Up Your Muscles: Targeted exercises around the knee joint help to strengthen them, and enhance the range of motion. This will train the muscles around the joint to move with ease post-surgery.

→ Boost Your Heart & Lungs: Prehabilitation will help improve overall cardiovascular health and support the body’s ability to cope with the stress of surgery and aid in recovery.

→ Education and Mental Preparation: Providing information about the surgical procedure, expected outcomes, and rehabilitation process to reduce anxiety and set realistic expectations.

→ Nutritional Guidance: Nutritional guidance ensures your body gets the necessary nutrients for optimal healing and a quicker return to your active lifestyle.

→ Pain Management Education: Prehabilitation arms you with knowledge about the entire process, reducing anxiety and setting realistic expectations.

→ Functional Training: By practicing everyday activities pre-surgery, you'll be ready to tackle them with confidence after your TKR.Prehabilitation before the Total Knee Replacement Surgery is just like an investment that will pave your way to a smoother recovery.

Physiotherapy to Unlock Your Knee’s Mobility

After the surgery, the next chapter is inclusive of helping you gain complete control of your life by manifesting a range of motion to the affected joint.

Early Movement: Starting to move your new knee soon can get critical. Gentle exercises prevent stiffness and promote healing. Primarily it is the reawakening of your leg and preparing it for the journey ahead.

→ Expert-Guided Exercises: The ABTP Expert will guide your way to tailored exercise programs to strengthen your muscles, improve your flexibility, and increase joint mobility. This ensures the joint’s readiness to move with strength and confidence.

→ Pain Management Partners: Pain management is an integral part of your recovery. Medication and physical modalities like ice and heat therapy work together to keep you comfortable and focused on your progress.

→ Moving Forward with Support: Initially, you may need a helping hand from crutches or a walker. But don't worry, this is just temporary! As you get stronger, you'll gradually transition to walking independently, taking each step with newfound freedom.

→ Adapting to Your Pace: Your physiotherapy plan is flexible and designed to adapt to your journey. The progress will be monitored, and phase-dependent exercises will be given to the individual.
