Popular Session Will Focus on Preps for Total Hip and Knee Replacements
PALM SPRINGS – June 1, 2011: Based on the success of its first event, Bodyworks Physiotherapy Clinic is hosting another free seminar for patients who are scheduled to undergo (or who are considering) total knee and hip replacement surgeries on Tuesday, June 21 from 6:00 to 6:45 PM at its Palm Springs clinic. Space is limited, so reservations are required.
Wilson and his professional staff will demonstrate proper pre- and post-op exercises, showcase some of the rehabilitative equipment that patients might need or use after surgery, and discuss simple steps that will help in handling the brief impairment that accompanies recovery.
“The last seminar we hosted in May was fully booked within a matter of days, so we wanted to reach out yet again to those patients who will be undergoing or are considering these major surgeries,” says David Wilson, Founder and Clinical Director of Bodyworks. “People really relate to the things we discuss; day-to-day issues that most people don’t consider,” explains Wilson. “We offer tips on how to best strategize for movement around the home, on planning post-op meals, and even selecting a reliable contact person in case of emergency.”
