Joint Replacement Rehab
Joint replacement rehab helps with the recovery process after surgery. Physiotherapy can be a very important aspect in the rehabilitation process after common joint replacements such as hip and knee replacements. How each patient responds to surgery is different and individual assessments and specific recovery programs are required to achieve each patients’ goals in a safe and effective way. Pre-surgery physio, otherwise known as ‘prehab’, is also very beneficial in achieving an accelerated positive outcome post-operatively. Formal inpatient rehab can be arranged for patients who require it, though the aim is to have patients able to do rehab in the home and avoid prolonged hospitalisation whenever possible. The sooner we can get you home and back to normal functioning the better – that is the aim of the surgery after all!
