Did you know that patients who have therapy before and after their joint replacement tend to have better outcomes than those that have therapy only after replacement?
Studies have shown that patients that perform rehabilitation prior to surgery (“prehabilitation”) tend to have better outcomes overall.
Prehab can help you perform better after surgery, including:
- Decreased length of hospital stay
- Improved strength
- Improved joint range of motion
- improved quality of life.
We can help you maximize your success and outcomes by building strength prior to surgery, as well as troubleshooting considerations for mobility following surgery. We can help you prepare whether you might need an assistive device such as a cane or walker, have a plan for navigating stairs to make the transition home following surgery much smoother. Following your joint replacement, we will evaluate your strength, range of motion, inflammation or swelling, pain, and balance to generate an individualized care plan to return to doing what you want to do.
