Hip and Knee replacement rehabilitation is essential for optimal recovery in patients undergoing total joint replacement (TJR) such as with total hip replacement (THR) and total knee replacement (TKR). The goal is to optimize postoperative outcomes, including strength, physical function, pain reduction, and return to normal activities of daily living. Increasingly, “prehabilitation” (rehabilitation services provided prior to surgery) is also considered to maximize patients’ functional status prior to surgery to improve postoperative outcomes.
Hip and knee replacements are major surgeries. Before surgery, patients must be prepared for these invasive procedures and after surgery, patients will need to work along with their physiotherapist to achieve optimal results. The more physically prepared a patient is before surgery, the more likely that person will be in enjoying a successful recovery and returning to normal function after surgery. At Nuvo Physio, your health practitioner aims to make your convalescent experience as smooth as possible.
We use a holistic approach to physiotherapy that takes into account the biopsychosocial experience associated with each client so that we may be able to effectively and systematically treat each individual. We also aim to foster strong body awareness in our clients as we encourage them to actively participate in their recovery and self-care, empowering them with education and providing them with our professional support and guidance.
