Joint Replacement Surgery - Physiotherapy Before Surgery Reduces Care Required After

A large American study has reviewed the outcomes of 4733 hip and knee replacement operations. They found that use of preoperative physiotherapy was associated with a 29% decrease in the use of any post-acute care services. This association was sustained after adjusting for comorbidities, demographic characteristics, and procedural variables.

They recommended pre-operative physiotherapy to provide an integrated, cost-effective, patient-care pathway.
