Knee Replacement Flexibility

Part of going to physical therapy while recuperating from a total knee replacement is the fact that you are working towards obtaining as much flexibility as possible.  The goal for “graduation” from my physical therapy (pt) program is 110.  I was told that 110 is the graduation goal for all knee replacement patients. The “average” person has about 125 (or so I was told).

Even though I will graduate with 110 (as others do), in order to obtain the 125, exercising and daily living will help us obtain that goal.  There’s still a ways to go.  It is a lot of work….moaning and groaning along the way. 🙂

Anyone who is going through a total knee replacement surgery needs to know that the surgery is the easiest part.  Rehab is the key to success.
