Continuous Passive Motion Machine: What Went Wrong

The Continuous Passive Motion Machine is a device designed in the early 1970’s with the idea of helping knee surgery patients regain range of motion. The hope was that hours of moving the leg back and forth would loosen up the knee and allow the patient to gain extension (knee movement up, away from the body) and flexion (knee movement down, back toward the body).

Neuromuscular Reeducation

Retraining Your Muscles after Total Knee Replacement

Neuromuscular reeducation refers to the attempt to retrain the neuromuscular system to function properly. The basis of this idea is that the formation of certain patterns of communication between muscles and nerves allow people to perform simple everyday acts such as climbing stairs. Normal patterns of movement can be disrupted by injuries or may be impaired in people with certain medical conditions. The general aim is either to re-establish normal patterns of movement in injured people or to create normal patterns of movement.

Building Quad and Hamstring Strength

The general weakening of patients’ leg muscles can begin long before knee replacement surgery. Seniors note a significant loss muscle as they age, a condition known as sarcopenia. This alone carries negative health consequences. Inactive or sedentary individuals can lose as much as 3‐5% of their muscle mass per decade after age 30, and this loss only accelerates after age 75. This loss is independent of the loss that people sustain because they limit their activities due to knee pain—this secondary loss exacerbates the first, and is further compounded for post-operative patients who lose substantial muscle tone during recovery.
