Patient: Robert- 55-year-old male, referred 4 weeks post left total knee replacement by his treating physiotherapist. Currently at session 5 of exercise rehabilitation and 9 weeks post-surgery.

  1. What has been the best part of your exercise rehabilitation programme?

The skill level of my AEP in terms of progressing my programme from hydrotherapy to gym and identifying and correcting my technique during my exercises (specifically foot and knee placement) to ensure I’m doing it properly.

  1. Has anything surprised you during your rehab programme?

How quickly I had deconditioned and how much I have let myself decondition over the years.

  1. Has the programme benefitted you in other areas of your life?

I am now able to climb stairs which I was not able to a few weeks ago. Also, general things such as walking distances and household tasks.
