Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) is an increasingly common treatment for end-stage osteoarthritis. Post-operative rehabilitation often occurs in the outpatient setting and is critical for achieving successful functional outcomes. Physiotherapists who are working with individuals post-TKA surgery need a good understanding of the surgical procedure, an organised framework for assessment and an effective management approach from the early post-surgical phase, up to one-year post-surgery.
The aim of this course is to provide an overview of rehabilitation guidelines and treatment techniques for individuals attending outpatient physiotherapy post-TKA surgery.
