Recover quicker with therapy prior to surgery
Your joint replacement surgery is scheduled - maybe it's a hip or knee. You’ve met with doctors and surgeons, read about what to expect, and talked to others who've been there. But questions linger: Will you bounce back quickly, or will you struggle to get on your feet again?
To improve the odds of a quick recovery, enlist the expertise of our physical or occupational therapists and do some Prehab before your surgery.
Estimates show that 50% of a successful outcome to joint surgery is due to the surgeon, and the other 50% is a patient’s commitment to recovery, starting with pre-operative exercise, or Prehab.
Traditional rehabilitation therapy is a program per-formed for up to three months after surgery, and most joint-replacement patients know to expect it.
Prehab is an occupational or physical therapy program started at least six weeks before surgery. It’s a new concept, and widely becoming a key to faster recovery following surgery.
