Hip and knee replacement surgeries are some of the most common operations performed in the U.S., with about 1 million completed each year. In addition, there are 300,000 ACL reconstructions being performed annually.
A recent quote from a medical doctor at the University of Pittsburg stated that 50% of outcome success is due to the surgeon and 50% of success is due to the patient’s commitment to recovery. It is understandable to be leery of an upcoming surgery. We highly recommend prehabilitation (pre-surgical physical therapy).
Research is showing faster recovery times and allows the patient to have a better understanding of the road to recovery by increasing strength, range of motion and building rapport with their therapist.
