Following joint replacement surgery, physical rehabilitation can play an important role in helping you decrease pain and increase range of motion. Depending on your unique needs, you may transition to a rehabilitation hospital to begin the recovery process after surgery, go home and receive home healthcare, or come to an outpatient therapy clinic for regular appointments.
Our skillful physical and occupational therapists work with many patients with joint replacements and understand the unique challenges of recovery following surgery. A physical therapist can help with exercises to strengthen the muscles around the joint and work on regaining motion in the new joint. An occupational therapist will work on safely mastering the motions necessary to live independently, such as bending and lifting. These clinicians, along with our physicians, provide insight and understanding about your situation and its effects on your daily life.
Following clinical therapy services, your therapists may recommend that you continue with an exercise program to maintain the positive effects of therapy.
