Total joint replacement can help relieve pain and enable you to live a fuller more active life, if you have decided that you are a candidate for surgery or would like to prevent surgery, Physical therapy can be an option to better prepare you for surgery or to allow you to put off surgery a little bit longer. There are preoperative exercise programs that we can provide that allow strengthening of your upper body to make it easier to use a walker or crutches and strengthening as well as mobility exercises for the Lower extremities to improve your outcome and get you ready for the postop care and exercise plan. We can also teach you about modifications for your lifestyle at home that will help make your postoperative transition easier
When surgery is completed some patients go directly to home after their hospital admission stay and they start outpatient therapy right away; others go to facility and begin the rehab either way often outpatient therapy is needed to help you achieve your goals of returning to a more active healthy lifestyle and WWS physical therapy can provide you with exercises that help you reach that Goal.
