3 BENEFITS OF PHYSIOTHERAPY AFTER A JOINT REPLACEMENT
If you are going for any joint replacement, such as a hip or knee replacement, then physiotherapy is going to be essential for the best outcome.
Here are 3 reasons why you need physio after joint replacement surgery:
1. Improved Chance of Success
You will need to become accustomed to using your new limb and encourage muscle growth around the affected area. Gentile exercises building up gradually through your recovery period are the best way to ensure both of those things, which improve the chance of successful recovery.
A physiotherapist will give you all the exercises you need to know 1 day after surgery. You may need to go for frequent check-ups after you are released from hospital to monitor your progress.
2. Reduced Pain
At first it will be tender when you exercise, but as soon as the wound starts to heal, exercise will help you to have less pain. Exercise encourages new muscles to grow as well as promoting blood flow and oxygen to spread throughout your body. This facilitates recovery and allows the site to drain easier too.
3. Better Coordination
Physiotherapy allows you to integrate your new limb by practicing to use it everyday, allowing you to have better coordination and more of a smooth transition back to work.
