KENDALL PARK, NJ – According to

Avani Vora, PT, DPT, assistant clinical director of Jersey Physical Therapy’s

South Brunswick clinic, the theory behind starting a prehabilitation regimen

prior to any joint-replacement surgery is based on a simple-to-understand

concept:





“The stronger you are going into

a surgery, the stronger you’ll be coming out of it,” Vora said. “Through

prehabilitation, we work to optimize patients’ strength and range of motion before they have joint-replacement

surgery so that their bodies – and minds – will be better prepared for the

journey they have ahead of them.”





Prehabilitation will be one

topic covered during Jersey Physical Therapy’s next “On the Move” Lifestyle

Enhancement Series workshop. Titled

“Joint Replacement 101: A Guide to What You Need to Know,” this free workshop

will be held at noon on Tuesday, April 15 at the South Brunswick Senior Center
.





The series, which offers free

lifestyle- and/or athletic-based workshops held in community locations near one

of Jersey Physical Therapy’s three locations, was established to “empower the

public to become more proactive in injury prevention, pain management and

improving overall function and health,” Vora said.





Besides

prehabilitation, April’s workshop will educate attendees on what to expect

following knee- and hip-replacement surgery, especially where rehabilitation is

concerned. However, Vora believes the concept of prehabilitation may strike the

biggest chord with attendees who may be facing joint surgery, and for good

reason.
