Abstract
To observe the effects of Gu's manipulation combined with progressive functional exercise method and simple progressive functional exercise method on the recovery of affected limb function after arthroscopic surgery for knee osteoarthropathy. Methods: A total of 98 patients with knee osteoarthropathy diagnosed in our department from January 2018 to January 2020 were randomly divided into simple progressive functional exercise method, the control group, with 49 cases of patients, and Gu's simple manipulation combined with progressive functional exercise method, the treatment group, with 49 cases of patients. Patients in both groups were routinely treated with subcutaneous arthroscopic dissection and meniscus trimming and suture with the ablation knife, and patients in both groups did not use external fixation after operation. The patients in the control group were given progressive functional exercise. In the manipulation group, the progressive functional exercise was combined with the guidance of simple manipulation therapy. Patients in both groups were discharged from the hospital on the 3rd day after surgery, and all received functional examination of the affected limb and knee WOMAC score on the 1st, 3rd, 7th, and 14th days after the surgery. Results: The comparison between the two groups showed that the patients in the treatment group had a significant reduction in pain 3 days after the surgery, swelling was significantly resolved, resting pain was improved, knee extension function and early walking stability were significantly improved; by the 14th day after surgery, the pain state of patients in the treatment group gradually tended to be consistent, but in the treatment group, the patients’ walking state, points of up and down stairs and activity difficulty scores were better than those in the control group. Conclusion: Gu's simple manipulation combined with progressive functional exercise can greatly promote the swelling of the affected limbs and functional recovery after knee arthroscopy. It is significantly better than simple progressive functional exercise. It is easy to operate and easy for patients to master and operate by themselves, so it is worthy to be popularized in patients with undergoing knee arthroscopy.
