Re: total knee replacement Ice Heat

I have had many friends with total knee replacements and the only time they used heat was right before PT. Then after PT they used Ice. The same with my knee surgery which was a HTO and ACL replacement. Good luck with your rehab.

Re: total knee replacement Ice Heat

I had my knee replacement done in April 2010. Normally if I use heat it's in the morning since that's when my knee is the stiffest. For the most part I use ice after working out.
