    Introduction: Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) is a common procedure for end-stage knee osteoarthritis, with postoperative rehabilitation, including physical therapy, playing a vital role in optimizing functional recovery. The optimal timing of physical therapy initiation remains controversial, with conflicting evidence in the literature. Early initiation may facilitate faster recovery, while delayed initiation may allow for adequate pain control and wound healing. Limited empirical evidence exists to guide decision-making regarding post-TKA physical therapy timing
