Joint Replacement Rehabilitation

If you or someone you love is facing joint replacement surgery you need to be prepared for what it will take to recover. Coming back following a joint replacement can be tough, but HealthSouth can help. Talk to your physician about what you can do before surgery to help you prepare.
