Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a common cause of severe pain, disability within the community, and dependence on others. In the U.S., a total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is one of the most commonly performed orthopedic procedures and 95% of them are attributed to OA. Following a TKA, pain and walking ability are the most important factors that need to be addressed. The purpose of this case report is to describe comprehensive PT management for a patient following a TKA with severe OA of the contralateral knee and report the outcomes.
