Be stronger, heal faster and get back to living life
Hip and knee replacement surgeries are some of the most common operations performed in the U.S., with about 1 million completed each year. Each one of these patients shares one thing in common: the patients desire to get back to the level of work, play and function they enjoyed before first experiencing joint pain. The physical therapy team at Athena Therapy can get them there
Working with a physical therapist before these and other surgeries can vastly improve your strength, education, and confidence going into such a major procedure. In turn, these “prehabilitation” efforts can improve the speed, success, and cost of your rehabilitation experience post-surgery, getting you back to doing the things you love – free of pain.
- Total and partial joint replacements
- Knee surgeries
- Back or neck procedures
