Total Knee And Hip Replacement

Cynthia Laportilla, Physical Therapist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says the average of physical therapy after a total knee and total hip replacement is about three months, and usually about more or less twenty-four sessions. "Usually your therapist will have conversations with you; they might tell you you're right on target, or this is maybe going a little slower, so it shouldn't be a surprise to you if things are going slower," she explains.
