Some patients ignore their surgeon’s recommendation to have ongoing orthopedic rehabilitation and that is a major mistake. A key part of quick and long-lasting recovery after a joint replacement or other major bone surgery is a directed, regular exercise program. By building up muscle strength around a new joint, a person can get back to normal activities and stay there.
builds up strength in the joint and surrounding muscles
restores normal movement in joints
eases pain and swelling
allows returning to normal activities sooner
helps with circulation after surgery to prevent problems with blood clots
The days of laying up for weeks before moving or standing after surgery are long past. Many patients start some form of therapy from day one of surgery. That probably begins with sitting on the edge of the bed and progresses to walking with the assistance of a therapist in the hospital.
Before a person leaves the hospital, they usually are given instructions for a professional therapist to follow so that recovery moves along without interruption. We work closely with a patient’s doctor and staff so that the surgery is successful and the patient can return to normal activities as quickly as possible without any relapse.
Rehab is a team effort - doctor, therapist, and patient. Once we have begun a patient on a regular rehabilitation schedule, we give them instructions and training for exercise to continue at home. Both formal rehab with MLC and informal rehab on a daily basis at home are the key to lasting and satisfying results.
Our goal is to help every patient who comes to us for orthopedic rehabilitation return to a pain-free life and enjoy that life to the fullest.
