Rehabilitation is an important aspect of your joint replacement surgery. A dedicated physical therapy gym is located on the orthopaedic unit to help you get a jump start on recovery. You and your travel partner will attend daily rehabilitation exercise classes, where therapists demonstrate muscle strengthening exercises, how to use the variety of equipment you will need during the recovery period (such as walkers and other adaptive equipment), and provide you with individualized rehabilitation coaching specific to your needs.
Once you and your physician have decided joint replacement surgery is right for you, the next step is to attend one of our free seminars to learn more about the procedures. Call 360-744-6695 for dates and times.
