Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of salat activity on knee pain, muscle strength and range of motion after posterior stabilized total knee arthroplasty. Material-Method: This prospective randomized study was conducted in KTO Karatay University and Medova Hospital, Konya, Türkiye, between March 2019 and June 2019. Thirty volunteers between the ages of 55 and 75 who had undergone total knee arthroplasty participated in this study. Participants were randomly dividded into two groups as Physical therapy group and Physical therapy + salat group. The participants in the physical therapy group were provided hot-cold application, transcutenous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), active-assisted range of motion, stretching and strengthening exercises during four weeks. Physical therapy+salat group performed salat activity in addition to the treatment. The knee joint patency was measured using a digital goniometer, muscle strength using a manual muscle tester, knee pain with the visual analogue scale (VAS). Results: There was no difference in knee flexion and extension muscle strength between the groups before and after treatment (p ˃ 0.05). There was no difference in VAS values between the groups before and after treatment (p ˃ 0.05). Knee flexion angle increased significantly in the physical therapy+prayer group compared to the post-treatment physical therapy group (p˂0.003). There was no significant difference between the groups in knee extension angle before and after treatment (p˃0.05). Conclusion: In this study, it was found that Salat activity after knee arthroplasty improved knee joint range of motion... Show more Show less
