Physical Therapy After Joint Replacement

Physical therapy may begin the day of surgery or the following morning. Our therapists help you rebuild your strength so that are able to function independently after discharge and recovery quickly.


Ultimately, patients are sent home for further rehabilitation, where he or she can heal in his or her natural environment. Physical therapy here at RWJ Hamilton includes exercises that simulate your home environment, for example, steps you may need to climb.  


Your total joint replacement team, including physical therapists, case manager and physicians make sure you have the tools you need to stay mobile and transition into full recovery, for example, a rolling walker, commode and tub bench. In addition, our team will work with you to ensure you receive physical therapy at home.
