Effect of department of orthopedics rehabilitation integrated mode on knee joint pain, function and quality of life in total knee arthroplasty

Objective: To investigate the effect of the department of orthopedics rehabilitation integration model on knee joint pain, function and quality of life in total knee arthroplasty.

Methods: 120 cases of patients received total knee arthroplasty from May 2016 to May 2017 in our hospital were enrolled. Patients were randomly divided into the control group with 60 cases receiving the routine nursing care and observation group with 60 cases receiving rehabilitation integration mode department of orthopedics. Knee pain, function and improvement of quality of life were compared between two groups.

Results: Two groups of patients before nursing knee pain, knee function, poor quality of life with no significant difference (P>0.05), improve the indexes of different degree of care, but the observation group improved better than the control group, the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05).

Conclusion: The application of department of orthopedics rehabilitation integration model can significantly relieve the patients with knee pain in total hip replacement, and improve the function score to improve the quality of life, and can be used widely as the preferred nursing program.
