No: Certainly not required but absolutely helpful for most. Every person and every injury requires different treatment to heal properly.
Stretch and Strength: Stretching is always the first step. Hamstring, iliotibial band and gastrocs are all excellent to stretch initially. After that, the quadriceps is the ideal muscle to strengthen to stabilize the knee joint.See 1 more doctor answer
Just had mako plasty on my left knee 5 days ago, released home after 3rd day, do I need physical therapy right away?
Call your ORS: These are fairly routine instructions and d/c planning done after knee reconstruction procedures. If you did not receive post- operative pt instructions as outpatient then call your ors office and inquire. Most all ors would want you to begin or continue pt @ outpatient clinic after your hospital stay. Best of luck!
I had knee surgery in 2003 n didn't do physical therapy and I'm a runner my leg is still a lot weaker than my left? Can I make it as strong as my left
PT: Transfers, balance, gait training, strengthening pelvis and hip muscles.
Quadriceps strength: Weak knees usually refer to weak quadriceps. Simple straight leg raises and wall sits are great exercises you can do under he supervision of a therapist as well as on your own between therapy visits. Stationary bikes, swimming, short arc squats, leg extension against resistance are all additional exercises often used to strengthen the quadriceps.See 1 more doctor answer
Focus on quadriceps: Straight leg raises and quadriceps contractions are usually allowed and warranted to eventually allow for crutch free ambulation. Of course your specific injury and/or surgical intervention will ultimately dictate what you should do during your recovery. Your treating physician should be the best source of information for your specific knee injury.See 1 more doctor answer
No limit: I prescribe therapy for my patient of all ages who have arthritic knees and other conditions. This assumes they are well enough from a medical standpoint to do therapy.
Minimal needed: Most people should require only minimal therapy. My patients get 2-3 weeks of home therapy with isometric quad sets, straight leg raises if no back problems, short distance walking and stationary bike can start at 2-3 weeks. No aggrresive therapy that hurts.See 1 more doctor answer
Do you think I should get closed manipulation, physical therapy every day, or a brace to bend my knee?
Arthrofibrosis: Depends on the cause. All of these options are ways to potentially improve range of motion for your knee. Did you just have surgery?See 1 more doctor answer
