Early High-Intensity Versus Low-Intensity Rehabilitation After Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) by Bade et al

Ulrik Dalgas, Birgit Skoffer, Inger Mechlenburg
Recently, a paper entitled “Early High-Intensity Versus Low-Intensity Rehabilitation After Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Randomized Controlled Trial” was published in Arthritis Care Res by Bade et al. (1). We have read the paper with great interest and noted that the study shows essentially no differences between the two training groups in patient-reported outcomes, functional performance and in muscle strength at neither 3 nor 12 months. Both training interventions seemed to improve the primary outcome (stair climbing) in comparison to historical data on patients following standard post-operative care, although such comparisons should be performed cautiously.
