Purpose : The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of an exercise program with patella mobilization on range of motion, muscle strength, and gait in patients with total knee arthroplasty. Methods : Thirty patients under the age of 65 who visited the T hospital in Daegu Metropolitan City and underwent total knee arthroplasty surgery were selected for this study. Fifteen patients were randomly assigned to the experimental group and took part in an exercise program with patella mobilization, and fifteen patients were randomly assigned to the control group and took part in just the exercise program. Each group took part in their intervention three times a week for four weeks. The measurement tools used included a goniometer, handheld dynamometer, and 10-meter walking test. In the statistical analysis results, to compare the about pre and post test differences within each group, a paried t-test was used, and to compare the differences between each group, an independent t-test was used. Results : There was a significant difference (p<.05) in the range of motion, muscle strength of the quadriceps femoris and, hamstrings, and 10-meter walking test within each individual group and between the two groups before and after the intervention (p<.05). Conclusion : All the results for the experimental group were significant. Therefore, it is expected that an exercise program with patella mobilization will be helpful for the recovery of the knee joint in patients who have undergone total knee arthroplasty.
