After joint replacement surgery, physical rehabilitation is an important tool to aid in decreasing discomfort and improving range of motion. Each patient has unique needs, and recovery at Sheltering Arms Institute can greatly benefit patients prior to going home. Sheltering Arms physical and occupational therapists work with many people following joint replacements and recognize the unique challenges of recovery following surgery. A physical therapist can help with exercises to strengthen the muscles around the joint and work on regaining motion in the new joint. An occupational therapist will work on safely conquering the motions necessary to live independently, such as bending and lifting. These clinicians, along with our physicians, provide insight and understanding about your situation and its effects on your daily life.
