Total Knee Replacement (TKR)
You might have a TKR to get rid of the pain associated with Joint Arthritis. The worn parts of the joint are replaced with metal or plastic components that simulate the joint surfaces. This surgery is generally successful, but you may need exercises and hands-on treatment to help you get the best result, to reduce swelling and promote the healing process in the short term, and improve movement, strength, balance and coordination in the long term.
