Your joint replacement surgery is behind you, but there are still some things you can do to ensure a full return to an active lifestyle
It’s been a few days since you got your new shoulder, and at this point, you should be continuing a regular exercise program to maintain the health of the muscles around your new joint. Now, it’s also time to get the help you need to speed your overall recovery and get back to your daily living activities.
HCM’s Home Care specialists understand the importance of increasing mobility and pain management, and they offer an array of services from medical assistance to meal preparation and light cleaning. You’ll also have access to HCM’s outpatient therapy. Your physical therapist will be with you for six to eight weeks, providing one-on-one treatment. Your therapist’s goal will be to restore your shoulder to healthy and strong.
To help you maintain your overall health during your recovery and beyond, take advantage of HCM’s Cardiac Rehab program and HCM’s Wellness Center. Cardiac Rehab, located at HCM’s Outpatient Rehab facility, focuses on your heart health and fitness. The Wellness Center spans 20,000 square feet of equipment for strength training and cardiovascular fitness and includes an Olympic-size swimming pool. The center offers a wide range of classes and activities and provides free fitness assessments to help you determine which activities are best for you.
From the moment that you decide to do something about your shoulder pain to the moment post-surgery that you realize you should have done something about it long before, HCM is by your side, leading you to a stronger and more active you.
