Hip and knee replacement surgeries are some of the most common operations performed in the U.S., with about 1 million completed each year. And each one of these patients shares one thing in common: a desire to get back to the level of work, play, and function he or she enjoyed before first experiencing joint pain. The physical therapy team at Bentz Physical Therapy can get them there.
Working with a physical therapist before these and other surgeries can vastly improve your strength, education, and confidence going into such major procedures. In turn, these “prehabilitation” efforts can improve the speed, success, and cost of your rehabilitation experience post-surgery, getting you back to doing the things you love…free of pain.
- Total- and partial-joint replacements
- Knee surgeries
