Following total joint replacement surgery, the main rehabilitation continues by you at home. However, we are here to help! We recommend a follow up within the first 6 weeks. This enables us to upgrade the exercises given to you in hospital, review your walking and check you are achieving optimal range in your new joint replacement.
Hydrotherapy is a great way to prepare for surgery as well as facilitate strength and flexibility after your joint replacement. Our focus is on joint protection. The stronger the muscles are, the more protected the joint is and the weaker the muscles are, the greater the load on the joint. This all leads to SUCCESS AND A GREAT NEW LIFE!
So you are having a Joint Replacement…
Elective joint replacement is now very common and an accepted way in the treatment of end stage arthritis. People who require a joint replacement often experience severe pain and reduced mobility. This has a direct impact on their quality of life.
Pre-operative physiotherapy helps you to prepare for your upcoming surgery.
- Exercises to improve muscular strength
- Walking aids/equipment for home post surgery
- Increased confidence
- Breathing exercises
Physiotherapists visit you in the hospital to get you up and about safely. The main rehabilitation continues by you at home. If your mobility is limited we offer rooms consultations or home visits. A follow up consultation at 6 weeks is recommended to upgrade exercises given to you in hospital, review you walking and check you have achieved optimal range in your new joint replacement.
