Total Knee Surgery – “Should My PT Massage My Knee?”

October 3, 2022

Although I don’t actually get this question very often from my total knee clients, I sure think about it a lot!

If you’ve had Total Knee Replacement (TKR) surgery, you might be wondering what A+ care looks like… for example, what if you were a professional athlete?

In this case, would you be getting more “hands-on” care from your PT, such as massage-based techniques to help reduce your pain and swelling, and to help optimize healing?

In my opinion (based on 15+ years of being a PT), this simple answer is YES!

And since you are an important person, one who deserves first-class care, your PT should be doing some type of hands-on or massage technique to your knee.

I’ll explain more in the video below! If you have any comments or opinions, please leave a comment below the video on YouTube!
