Physical therapy and occupational therapy play a key role in the rehabilitation of people who have received a total joint replacement of the knee, hip, or shoulder. Joint replacement physical therapy can also benefit people who are limited in their daily lives due to joint pain from all types of arthritis.
Physical therapy helps restore range of motion, strength, mobility, flexibility, endurance, self-care skills, and the ability to perform prior activities. Additionally, a therapist at Lake Oconee Rehabilitation Physical Therapy can provide you with the education needed to approach daily activities such as walking and climbing stairs, getting in and out of a chair or car, and tying your shoes. Questions about assistive devices such as canes and walkers, commonly associated with joint replacement surgery, can also be addressed by our staff.
