Effect of Tensor Fascia Lata Stretching in Lateral Knee Pain Post Total Knee Replacement

Dr Alpa Purohit, Dr Sweety Shah


Abstract: Post TKR (Total knee replacement) multiple causes for development of pain around knee joint-infection instability, malrotation, instability, weak extensor mechanism, soft tissue tightness, impingement. The ITB/TFL provides dynamic lateral stabilization of the patella & an internal rotator of hip. TFL/ITB complex tightness may contribute to the development of PFPS. A tight TFL through its attachment into the ITB, will cause lateral tracking of the patella, particularly at 20of knee flexion. An over-tight ITB is not favourable, as this can cause lateral knee pain. Hence, keeping your TFL as flexible as possible, decreasing the pull it has on the ITB, will decrease your chance of lateral knee pain caused by ITB tightness.20 post operative T. K. R. , divided into 10 in each group according to criteria and received tfl stretching and conventional treatment. pre and post treatment pain & function were measured by vas & hfks-high flexion knee scale. within and between group analysis shows p
