As we get older our bodies just don’t have the resiliency that they used to when we were younger. Even the most active people can develop conditions with their bones and joints that are out of their control. If you and your doctor have tried many treatments that just are not working to heal your stiff, painful knee, then knee replacement surgery may be the best solution for you. There are many reasons why people have knee replacement surgery and can be something that doesn’t have to keep you down and inactive. Having a new knee replacement can be something that can get you back out there and more mobile then you have been in a long time, especially if you have suffered from not being able to perform the simplest of activities. After having the surgery, you need to make sure that you are equipped with a CPM to exercise your knee and walking aids that will help you walk around while you are rehabilitating your knee. The MedEquip Shop has the physical therapy supplies you will need while you are in the recovery process and allow yourself to heal fully.
After having knee replacement surgery, you will more than likely be standing and moving the joint the day after your procedure. In the beginning you will be walking with the assistance of parallel bars which will then be transitioned into a mobile walking device such as a walker, crutches, or a walking cane until you are able to support the entire weight of your body on that joint. The MedEquip Shop offers many of these professional and high quality walking aids that will get you back to being the active you. Call us today and speak to one of our professional team members and they will help you find the right walking aid for you.
