Mobility After Surgery

August 9, 2019

Transcript

Following the surgery, the most important thing is to improve your mobility. I want you getting up, walking around multiple times a day, even setting a timer for every hour to get up out of your seat and to walk. Typically with the use of the walker. This allows for your joint to move and actually improves the pain relief. It also allows for decreased risk of blood clots as well as any pulmonary issues or complications.
