Individuals who have gone under knee-replacement surgery need to take extra care. It is necessary to follow the guidelines of the doctors and physiotherapists to get the best relief after the knee-replacement. Following proper rehab exercises and physical therapy will help you to get back to your everyday life at the earliest. Below we can take a look at the physical activities to follow post-knee-replacement.
- The first one is the quadriceps sets. Here you need to tight your thighs and keep the knee straight for 5 to 10 seconds. Patients need to repeat this exercise 10 times
- The next is the straight leg raise exercise, where you need to lift your legs, keeping the thighs tight. You need to hold it for 5 to 10 second and repeat it 10 times
- Now, you need to move your foot up and down rhythmically and repeat the exercise 2 to 3 times
- The next one is knee straightening exercises. Here it would be best if you placed a towel under your heel so that your knees don’t touch the bed or the surface. Now try straight your knee at full length and hold it for 5 to 10 seconds
- The following exercise is sitting supported knee bend. This exercise is to do while you are sitting on a chair. You have to place your foot behind the operated knee and start bending your knee as much as you can
To do those exercises mentioned above, you need to follow a schedule as advised by doctors. Following proper guidelines, many patients can back almost to their normal life in 3 weeks after the surgery. However, for many patients, it can take 4 to 6 weeks. Doctors mention that a patient can get up from the chair and start living an everyday life after 3 to 6 weeks from the knee surgery.

In lockdown my 4 years son fall while playing at night 10:30 pm. It was emergency as his elbow got dislocated.
Due to Covid no any doctor was allowing us to visit, and we were afraid to go to big hospital. Even our regular pediatrician asked us to come in morning
We called Dr Vinil Shinde, he listen our case calmly observed my son on video call considering emergency he called us at his clinic immediately at night 11 pm
He attended him and releaved his pain.
Initially I have given my feedback. I hope it was not negative but little disappointing. I would like to apologise as it was given before I complet my 5 days treatment period which was given by Dr. Today is my 5th day of my treatment and I am feeling better. Thanks to Dr Vinil for his treatment. Seriously I was impressed with his friendly and polite nature.
Excellent, he cleared all my doubts and queries. Very humble and polite.. I would recommend for sure.
They are very humble and explains everything regarding problem. The best example for why we called such person as Doctor.
Very good . Doctor explained the injury and the precautionary measure properly. Very humble spoken which is important because the patient is already traumatized. Overall very good Diagnosis
I visited him during initial days of lockdown when I got fracture on my left arm. The most important thing I liked is that he quickly asked me to come to the clinic when I told him that it is urgent. He listened my problem very carefully and prescribed the proper medication. Thank you Dr.
