A caring community for those who have had or are considering Total Knee Replacement.
Why We're Here
We are here to keep us all going forward! At some point approximately 10-12 weeks after total-knee replacement surgery, the supports seem to fall away, the exercises seem tedious, we are feeling "good enough" – and one then realizes that the journey to full rehabilitation and the life we hoped for by having the surgery will be very long and in many ways, very lonely.
At THE KNEE CLUB®, we recognize that together we offer inspiration, support, and community to one another because we have shared this journey!
We are inspired by one another to keep working and exercising to realize our dream of a full life with full use of our new knee!
We encourage one another and celebrate the victories.
We learn from one another’s stories, and from healthcare professionals who guide and coach us along the way.
Most of all, we offer camaraderie and reasons to keep going!
With discipline and tenacity we press on, drawing strength from one another to be who we envisioned when we elected to undergo the surgery.
Who We Are
We are a group of TKR (total knee replacement) people at different stages of rehabilitation and renewal. We offer hope, inspiration and a place to talk about the journey. We learn how to finish strong, with others who really understand.
Where We Are
We meet at Total Rehabilitation and Sports Injury Clinic.
Email ahead to let us know you are coming (firstname.lastname@example.org), or just drop in. We look forward to welcoming you at 390 Provencher Blvd in Winnipeg.

THE KNEE CLUB® T-shirts, opportunities for pre-operative orientation, post-operative rehabilitation, and inspiration from certified athletic therapists, physiotherapists, nutritionists, and massage therapists for your journey await!
CBC RADIO 1: NOW AND FOREVER, WITH TREVOR DINEEN
Wed, Dec 5, 1:15 PM (2 days ago)
What it takes to live with a chronic condition https://www.cbc.ca/listen/shows/now-or-never/episode/15641282
Every day, many Canadians suffer silently with chronic conditions that are invisible to those around them. How they look on the outside doesn't reflect the pain, anxiety, fear and loneliness that might be going on inside. But still, they push on. On this Now or Never, meet people who refuse to be defined by their chronic condition. Lace up your hiking boots with a woman hiking the world's most dangerous and remote trails, even though she lives with a blood clot that could kill her at any moment. Meet identical twin sisters whose close relationship is put to the test, after one is diagnosed with lupus. And an aspiring sports journalist with a stutter works up the courage to ask his hero a question at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
