Have you had a hip or knee replacement? Or maybe you have been told you require a hip or knee replacement in the future. If this applies to you, no need to fear.
The latest research regarding total hip and knee replacements suggests that specific exercise before and after surgery provide better short terms outcomes in terms of functional improvement and reduced pain.
Prior to surgery the muscles surrounding your hip and knee can be targeted and strengthened in order for those effects to carry on after surgery.
There are several exercises you can be doing in the comfort of your own home.
Our experienced physiotherapists can assist you with an individual program specific to your body, potential surgery and goals.
Alternatively, The Physio Clinic has an on-site gym. You can exercise using the newest equipment and machines and have an exercise program designed for you to return to doing the things you want to do in life faster.
We have physiotherapist run small gym classes who design a program for your and guide your exercises and rehabilitation. We also run most specific total hip and knee classes. There will only be people in the class who are going to have or have had a knee or hip replacement.
