joint replacement

Physical therapists at UM Charles Regional Rehabilitation (UM CRR) are ready to help you during your outpatient joint replacement rehabilitation.

We can work with you before surgery to help you become stronger, more flexible and more comfortable with what to expect from your upcoming surgery. This approach makes an important difference in your recovery after surgery.

Once you have completed your surgery and your doctor decides you are ready for outpatient PT, UM CRR is well prepared to help you recover. This is our wheelhouse.

If you would like to stop by and see the clinic before surgery, we would love to meet you.
