Total knee replacement surgery is a viable option for many people living with pain and disability from severe knee arthritis. The surgery has a high success rate, with most knee replacements lasting upwards of 20 years.
An important part of the rehabilitation process following total knee replacement is strengthening the leg muscles that support the knee joint. As with any period of immobilization, the lesser-used muscles quickly lose mass and strength. Loss of strength in the thigh muscles limits mobility and puts people at higher risk for falls. Therapies that minimize these losses have the potential to speed healing time and decrease complications after surgery.
Amino acids are the building blocks for protein synthesis in the body. In the first study of its kind, 28 people (average age 69 years) were given 20 grams of essential amino acids or placebo two times per day for one week before and two weeks after total knee replacement surgery. The participants’ functional mobility and thigh muscle mass were assessed before surgery and two and six weeks postoperatively.
“Our results clearly demonstrate that a reduction in muscle breakdown occurred in the amino acid group compared with the placebo group,” said lead study author, Hans Dreyer. “These results offer preliminary evidence in support of a role for amino acid treatment and increased protein consumption to offset muscle loss and functional mobility impairments following total knee replacement.”
Knee replacement surgery may help people with significant damage in one or both knees resume healthy activities that osteoarthritis is interfering with, such as low-impact sports like golfing, swimming, and biking.
