Physiotherapy for patients with total knee arthroplasty

...a new clinical practice guideline by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)

This clinical practice guideline on the management of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) is the result of a systematic review, which found 192 studies eligible for review.

Several factors were taken into account when determining the strength of recommendations. Among others: study quality; magnitude of benefit vs. risk, harms, and costs; quality, quantity, and trade-off between treatment benefits and harms; magnitude of treatment effect; and data on critical outcomes.

The strength of recommendations ranged from best practice/ theoretical/ foundational to strong, with well-defined criteria for each.
