Arthritis and joint pain are common problems faced by people across the world. Though there are a number of treatments to alleviate pain, patients suffering from chronic conditions may opt to undergo a Joint Replacement surgery for increased normal daily function. However, it is essential to take a number of steps after surgery, to ensure that you heal well, and can move around like before, a major step being physiotherapy. Without physiotherapy treatment, your implant or prosthesis may not make a difference in allowing for movement, reversing the effects of surgery. Here is why you shouldn’t miss out on Physiotherapy after Joint Replacement.
Physiotherapy is a rehabilitation process, where mobility is gradually restored to the joint and muscle, following a Joint Replacement Surgery. The intensity of Physiotherapy exercises is slowly increased, right from the first-day post surgery, until the patient has completely recovered. It essentially consists of some exercises to practice regularly at home, by yourself, as well as daily or weekly sessions conducted by a physiotherapist, as required. During Physiotherapy, you can either opt for an at-home Physiotherapist, who regularly comes to your home to conduct exercises and therapy, or you can opt to visit a Physiotherapy Centre. It is essential to only do the exercises recommended by a trained professional, as you may end up injuring your artificial joint without the guidance of an expert.
