Sometimes


Proteolytic therapy can be very effective for some and not at all for others. Trying it is the only way to know. It is important to take proteolytic enzymes that target systemic inflammation on an empty stomach and several times a day to give them the best chance of working. The ones that are enteric coated are often better tolerated than those that are not.

Evaluation


There are many possible causes of painful popping of the knee (chondromalacia patella, Meniscal tears, intra-articular loose bodies and instability of the joint secondary to ligamentous injury) and the appropriate treatment will be determined by the diagnosis. A visit to an orthopaedic surgeon should give you an answer.

Everybody recovers differently after a total knee replacement. The amount of physical therapy is therefore, variable. A usual PT course is anywhere from 4-12 weeks. The more dedicated the patient is to his/her recovery, the more successful the end result of the surgery will be.

Therapy is critical after replacement to restore your motion and rebuild strength. I would not perform surgery if I felt a patient would not perform or be unable to do therapy afterwards.

Extremely important


Physical therapy is crucial for full functional recovery after a total knee replacement. I believe that therapy should start as soon as possible, ideally the day after your surgery. Physical therapy should include soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and strengthening exercises. Finding a skilled physical therapist is key to a complete recovery after receiving your new knee joint.

Depends


If the knee is severly arthritic and deformed with constant pain no question the knee replacement is by far a better option.Pt does not correct the arthritis ,it help to srengh the muscles around the knee,improve the ROM and muscles contractures.One is not subtitute for the other,they complement each other.
