How many times have you heard a patient say, “I had my hip replaced three years ago and it doesn’t hurt now. However, I just never got all my strength back and I still feel like I could lose my balance and fall”?
Following lower extremity total joint arthroplasty, it is common to focuses on pain reduction, basic trans-fers, range of motion and basic strengthening. Oftentimes this is where we or the patients stop. Long-term functional improvement and ambulation safety can be overlooked.
This course aims to emphasize the long-term outcomes following ankle and hip joint replacement. We will examine what current literature says about which post-operative deficits are most impactful and the best means of improving balance after the surgery. What works may be surprisingly simple.
