How long is rehab for knee replacements?

May18th 2020

Physical therapy after a knee replacement may vary depending on surgeon restrictions and/or how quickly you are able to regain your motion. Knee rehabilitation usually lasts 12-16 weeks following a knee replacement. Treatment may begin at 2-3 times per week and be reduced to one time per week by the end of treatment. It is important to work towards achieving full available motion and strength of the knee, so that you can make a complete return to your previous activities.
