Joint Replacement Rehab

Shoulders, hips, and  knees are the most common sites for joint replacement. In these joints, a metal prosthesis is used to create an artificial joint that will function similarly to your original one.
Physiotherapy plays an important role in recovering from joint replacement surgery. Initially there will be care provided to ensure you are able to walk and climb stairs safely with a cane or walker. The goal of physiotherapy care is to stretch and strengthen the new joint to achieve maximum functional recovery, while also providing pain relief, education, and gait retraining so you can walk safely and efficiently.  With time, your new joint will function better than it did prior to the surgery, allowing you to return to your normal day to day activities.
