Therapy After Orthopedic Surgery
Charles Jordan, Orthopedic Surgeon at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, says what is going to make a patient better is the work they put in to get better with therapy.
"I can't stress enough the importance of exercising and moving the joint that was injured. Once we stabilize that bone the whole point is to get that joint moving because really what ends up causing problems is stiffness," he points out.
It is important to move right after the surgery in most cases because the more you keep your body from getting up now, the more you are going to feel the effects in the long-term.
