Abstract

Background: Patients with severe knee osteoarthritis requires Total knee arthroplasty (TKA). TKA is a surgical procedure to replace the weight bearing surfaces of the knee joint to reduce pain and disability. The main aim of this study is to find out the effectiveness of structured physiotherapy intervention on pain, proprioception and balance in patients with TKA. Material and Methods: 10 participants were included in this pilot study with unilateral TKA. Structured physiotherapy intervention was given for 4 weeks post TKA. Outcomes were assessed at baseline, 2 weeks and at 4 weeks after structured physiotherapy intervention. Results: Pain decreased significantly from baseline (60.50%), balance (28.40%) and knee ROM (31.81%) have been improved. There was only 5.63% change in joint proprioception from its baseline values.  Conclusion: After 4 weeks of Structured Physiotherapy intervention we found a significant reduction in pain and improvement in balance and knee ROM while there was no improvement in knee joint proprioception. However, adequate powered RCTs are needed to determine the long term effect of exercise therapy on pain, proprioception and balance after TKA.
