Apports thérapeutiques de l'imagerie motrice lors des phases aigue et chronique chez des sujets ayant subi une prothèse totale du genou primaire unilatérale

Abstract : The primary aim of the present work was to determine the therapeutic benefits of a specific motor imagery training. Combining motor imagery with classical physical therapy was found to be effective in reducing pain and increasing quadriceps strength after total knee arthroplasty during the acute phase at the first month postoperatively. During the chronic phase, at the 6th month postoperatively, motor imagery might contribute to correct the asymmetry of gait by increasing the strength of the ipsilateral quadriceps and, consequently accentuating the weight loading on the operated knee, as well as by improving knee proprioception through an increase in the maximum knee flexion during the swing phase. MI might also help elderly people after total knee arthroplasty to climb stairs more quickly, easily, and safely. This could attenuate the risk of falls on stairs, and consequently decrease the frequency of major injuries. In summary, the integration of motor imagery in clinical rehabilitation programs after primary unilateral total knee arthroplasty is relevant and promising
