Hip replacement surgery can eliminate pain and restore function in patients affected with severe arthritis, or who have had a fall that resulted in hip fracture. However, patients recovering from hip replacement procedures often experience pain, swelling, and stiffness in their new joint, along with muscle weakness that can last for years after surgery. Evergreen Health and Rehab provides the latest therapies in post-surgical rehabilitation to help patients restore and maintain function with their new hip.
The Latest Therapies for Maximum Success
Evergreen Health and Rehab uses advanced rehabilitation techniques that reduce pain and swelling while accelerating strength and mobility to help the patient resume a healthy, active lifestyle.
