After Your Joint Replacement
Joint Replacement Physical Therapy
As a Saint Thomas Health joint replacement patient, you will begin physical therapy soon after surgery. Physical therapists work with each patient individually in their room, and once you are mobile, we provide group physical therapy in the in-house gym.
Once a patient is discharged from inpatient rehabilitation, the Saint Thomas Outpatient Rehabilitation clinics are ready to pick up where the inpatient therapist left off. Outpatient clinics are conveniently located throughout the Middle Tennessee region and staffed by physical, occupational and speech therapists. Each center provides the staff and tools needed to ensure a full recovery from any joint replacement.
