A quick and safe return to activity is key to preventing complications after joint replacement surgery. That's why MaineHealth rehabilitation therapists will start working with you right after surgery, often in your hospital room.

They will evaluate you sitting and standing and introduce exercises designed to improve joint mobility and strengthen the surrounding muscles. Muscles are the body's first line of defense, so the stronger your muscles are, the sooner you will recover.
