Knee Replacement Rehabilitation – Swim Spas West Linn

Did you know that about 700,000 Americans get knee replacement surgery performed each year? The key to getting back on your feet with good mobility and little pain is consistent rehabilitative therapy post-surgery.

Here’s how a swim spa can aid in the rehabilitative process.

The Power of Buoyancy
The buoyancy of water relieves pressure on sensitive joints during the healing process, allowing for strength rebuilding. The floating environment also assists in stretching exercises beneficial to increase mobility.

Pain Free Movement
Working the joint is key to the rehab process. A lot of patients experience pain and swelling while performing exercises to strengthen the knee and joint. Performing those exercises in a swim spa helps ease the pain and also helps reduce swelling.

Exercises for knee replacement rehabilitation in a swim spa:
• Gentle squats (warm up joints)
• Hamstring stretches
• Hamstring lunges
• Knee extensions
• Walking at a slow pace

All in all hot tubs and swim spas provide vital health benefits.
