Post-Operative Rehabilitation of Knee Arthroscopy
An analysis of continuous passive motion (CPM) as a method of post-operative rehabilitation of knee arthroscopy.
This paper reviews the literature in an attempt to determine whether CPM is of considerable medical benefit and also to determine whether there is any cause for concern with self-managed rehabilitation.

“Knee arthroscopy has become a popular treatment for effective diagnosis of knee problems as well as being used to treat knee problems. In many cases, arthroscopy has replaced previous invasive methods. The major benefits include the less invasive nature of the procedure. This results in less hospital time and less recovery time, which also produces a cost saving for the patient.”
