Your new joint

Your new joint

In the days following surgery, your orthopaedic surgeon, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and physical and occupational therapists will closely monitor your condition and progress. You’ll spend a great deal of time exercising your new joint. Gradually you will become increasingly mobile and confident in your new joint. When you get home, keep up the exercise program you learned in the hospital according to the directions from your surgeon and physical therapist. You may see your physical therapist for several in-home treatments. Your physical therapist will also make recommendations about your safety, review your exercise program and continue working with you on range of motion.

It is recommended to expect to regain strength and endurance as you begin to take on more of your normal daily routine. However, your orthopaedic surgeon and physical therapist will outline a specific plan that you should follow. Your post-surgical pain should be temporary.. Most patients with artificial joints are able to enjoy many activities, though some should be avoided. In general, high impact exercises, such as running, jumping, heavyweight lifting, or contact sports, are not recommended. Participating in these activities, or activities like them, may damage your joint or cause it to wear down much more quickly. Please always ask your surgeon because you have to remember that some activities are not adviseable after you have been prosthesized. Low impact activities such as swimming and walking are encouraged, subject to your surgeon’s recommendation.
