One of the most effective medical treatments is knee replacement surgery, which involves replacing a poorly damaged knee surface with a metal implant. They’ve become more widespread as a result of enhanced implants, surgical expertise, and cutting-edge technologies.
In this blog, you can anticipate a detailed discussion of all the pre-surgical and post-surgery preventive measures you should consider before and after knee replacement surgery.
A knee replacement surgery requires you to make certain lifestyle changes.
The three most important aspects of one’s lifestyle to change are as follows:
- Changes to the home setup that are necessary must be introduced.
- For easy access to the commode, toilet seats should be raised and armrests should be placed.
- Exercising before surgery will strengthen your muscles, increase your endurance, and assist in keeping your joints working.
Care Measures are critical for a successful recovery after you’ve had the replacement surgery. The following are important measures to take:
- The post-surgical course includes pain and swelling in the operated limb. Prescribed drugs can be taken as advised by your physician.
- Regular physiotherapy with a professional physiotherapist is a must to strengthen the knee. Regular physiotherapy will help your knees regain their agility and make it possible for you to resume your regular activities, including floor sitting.
- You should keep your wound dry until the staples are removed, which should take about 2 weeks.
Despite all of these precautions taken prior to and after surgery, a list of these activities should be considered for the rehabilitation process.
