How to Recover from a Joint Replacement

For a lot of people, joint replacements are a pretty anxiety-inducing topic, because essentially you're going to have somebody cut into your body, take parts out, and put new parts in. So it's a high-risk sort of situation, but what we know to be true.

We can help people mitigate some of the protectiveness that would set in after a surgery like that. So what people experience is a decline in function. That joint is deteriorating, and now it's been established that we do need to replace it. But what people don't realize is that the stress of the replacement takes you another jog downwards before you can start to incline back into your function.

We don't want that to happen. Where is this coming from? It’s coming from your body's neurological guarding against this surgical trauma. So what we want to have to happen is to get this structure upgrade, and now our function can get us out into this improved quality of life, much, much sooner.

So how do we do that? Ideal scenario? I would work with someone. Before the surgery, we would do some reeducation work. I want your muscles and your nervous system to be on the same page and as efficient as possible even with the compromised joint. So second phase, as soon as you get the surgery, we want to use our technology to be doing anti-atrophy and anti-spasm protocols.

It's going to help the body get much more efficient at processing the inflammation that's necessary for healing. But keeping you from having restricted ranges, of motion, being able to kind of expand that much more quickly, because the only thing that stops you from getting your range of motion back is the guardedness being signaled to your muscle.

So if we can change that great. If we can stop your muscle from deteriorating that’s even more fantastic. You're going to be on a much faster track to regaining strength and movement. So the next phase after the initial, immediate postsurgical phase is re-education and re-strengthening. Being able to get somebody fully functional and confident in their movements.

And we can do that on a very accelerated basis. So if one goes through this process, we'll see a much smaller dip and a much faster rise. We've had people with a knee replacement come through and pass all of their conventional physical therapy tests in two weeks in one day, post-surgery - real client, real result.

We've had people with hip replacements and construction jobs be back to work in just over two weeks. We've had people with shoulder replacements get a full range of motion and the ability to do a pushup in five weeks. So if that sounds intriguing to you, give us a shout. We're not trying to make claims everybody's a little bit different. But those are real clients and real results that we've worked with personally.
