Objective: This paper aims to discuss and analyze the effect of electroacupuncture combined with rehabilitation training on the recovery of quadriceps femoris muscle strength after knee joint surgery. Methods: The study period is from May 2021 to May 2023. 60 patients with postoperative knee joint surgery admitted to the rehabilitation department of our hospital were selected as the research objects, and divided into the study group and the control group by using the odd-even number lottery method with 30 cases in each group. The study group received electroacupuncture and rehabilitation training, and the control group received only rehabilitation training. The recovery of knee joint function, 60°/s isokinetic muscle strength test, and rehabilitation effect were compared between the groups. Results: Before rehabilitation, there was no statistically significant difference (P > 0.05) in the comparison of knee joint function recovery indicators such as function, muscle strength, flexion deformity, range of motion, and stability between the groups. After rehabilitation, the function, muscle strength, knee joint function recovery indexes such as flexion deformity, range of motion, and stability in the study group were significantly better than those in the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Before rehabilitation training, the peak torque (PT), total work (TW), and average power (AP) at 60°/s isokinetic muscle strength tests of the two groups were compared, and the difference was not statistically significant (P > 0.05). After rehabilitation, the PT, TW, and AP at 60°/s isokinetic muscle strength tests of the study group were significantly higher than those of the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05). The rehabilitation effect of the study group was significantly higher than that of the control group, the difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Electroacupuncture combined with rehabilitation training can promote the recovery of quadriceps femoris muscle strength after knee joint surgery, and the recovery of knee joint function is better, which is worthy of widespread application in clinical practice.
