As we age, it becomes more important to monitor oneself after a hospital visit no matter the severity. The downtime can leave you open to infections and prone to falls.
By going back to a sedentary lifestyle, your pain is not likely to subside as quickly if at all. If your joints get stiff after a stay in the hospital, you will not feel like you are recovering much at all.
One of the most important aspects of physical therapy is education, and through regular visits with your therapist you can truly understand what is happening with your own body every step of the way and feel confident that you are in control of your own life.
The therapists at Corona Hills Physical Therapy & Wellness are educated and ready to help you with your recovery process.
