Knee Surgery Recovery
If you have suffered from knee pain or had a knee injury, you will realize how much we depend upon our knees for everyday activities such as walking, squatting, and kneeling. Knee injuries and denigration of the knee joints over time can result in pain and stiffness, stopping you from enjoying life to its fullest.
While physical therapies and medications often help, there can come a time when knee surgery becomes necessary. Some of the most common knee surgeries involve:
- Knee or partial-knee replacement.
- Treatment of an injured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
- Releasing the ligaments of the kneecap to help correct position.
- Performing a microfracture to stimulate damaged cartilage to heal.
- Removing, replacing, transplanting, or repairing the meniscus (the cartilage that cushions the bone).
What to Expect During Knee Surgery Recovery
During your knee surgery recovery time, you may need to use crutches for anywhere between one and ten days. While there is likely to be swelling, you will usually be encouraged to initiate some range-of-motion exercises. Your doctor will let you know the specifics of when you can rely fully on your knee once more.
To ensure a smooth knee surgery recovery, it’s important to plan and set aside sufficient time for your knee to rest as much as possible. By staying at a recovery center like Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness, you can take the stress out of the postoperative period and let us take care of you while you heal.
