How Long Will I Need PT After a Joint Replacement?
There is no “one size fits all” answer for PT after a joint replacement. However, our goal is always to get you back to your regular activities as soon as safely possible.
You may be surprised that you’ll likely be taking your first steps while you’re still in the hospital! This is vital to ensure a good start to your physical therapy.
However, in general, for a knee replacement, you’ll use a walker for the first one to three weeks. Complete recovery typically takes four to eight weeks.
A hip replacement has a similar timeframe, as you’ll be having PT after a joint replacement for around six to eight weeks.
A shoulder replacement will require ongoing PT for around four months.
However, physical therapy is not limited to joint replacements. We’ve helped patients recover effectively from conditions such as tennis elbow, rotator cuff injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and more.
