Effect of Physiotherapy After Total Knee Replacement
Not Provided

Physiotherapy plays an important part in rehabilitation after total knee arthroplasty. Even if this is a common practice, few studies have been performed on this issue.

The prime aim of this study is to examine the effects of an ambulatory individualized task-oriented exercise program compared with current ambulatory physiotherapy(usual care)on activity performance and self efficacy beliefs in the time span 6 weeks to 3 months after total knee arthroplasty with a follow-up at twelve months.

HO:Task oriented physiotherapy has better effect than usual care on activity performance and self-efficacy beliefs in the time span 6 weeks to 3 months after total knee replacement.
