At-Home Rehabilitation Plan
Following knee replacement surgery, you’ll need extensive rehab. For the first weeks following your operation, physical therapy will come to your home to help you with your exercises.
- PT every day for a week
- PT every other day for two more weeks
You’re encouraged to have more sessions after that on your own time.
