If you or a loved one have undergone hip or knee replacement surgery and are resisting rehabilitation, suffer no more. Rehabilitation is an extremely important step in your complete recovery from replacement surgery. In order to return to your normal life post-surgery, you have to rebuild the muscles surrounding the new joint.

During the first couple of days after surgery it is important to get up and move. It is suggested that you get up and walk around your home rather than relaxing on your bed. Sometimes, doctors will have you climb a couple of stairs or go on short, assisted walks around the hospital even before you are discharged. In order to maximize healing after a replacement, it is important to get on your feet as soon as possible.

At Advance Physical Therapy in Lindenhurst, we will provide an individualized treatment plan for you in order to optimize your recovery. Your doctor will most likely recommend beginning physical therapy as soon as possible. In Lindenhurst, we will help you get back to your active lifestyle with our rehabilitation program of daily exercises that you will do with us and at home.
