After complex joint surgery such as a knee replacement, physical therapy is necessary to promote healing and expand a patient’s range of motion. Watch this video to learn why in-home physical therapy can help patients recover more quickly and with less stress.
The patient in this video explains that seeing her physical therapist at home allowed her to avoid using the car, which would have been painful and difficult after a knee replacement. Working in the home also meant using furniture and objects she already had, rather than having to purchase new items or adapt the exercises.
