Abstract

A loss of range of motion, commonly defined as stiffness, is a relatively common complication after knee surgery or traumatic injury [1]. The high incidence of postoperative knee stiffness observable in the past reduced significantly with improvement of surgical techniques and rehabilitation protocols [2]. Any symptomatic loss of knee flexion or extension compared with the opposite normal knee should be considered and treated as knee stiffness. In order to address conservative or surgical therapy, the cause, the type and the degree of stiffness must be identified and staged.
