Joint Replacement Center

Rehabilitation Gym

The Joint Replacement Center is located on the 6th Floor of Trinity Hospital. Dedicated joint replacement staff is focused on assisting with recovery of joint replacement patients. There is a dedicated gym located near the patients’ rooms.

Patients are encouraged to dress in their own clothing such as a t-shirt, shorts or sweatpants, and sneakers. This will allow patients to take full advantage of therapy by being comfortable and ready to exercise when arriving to the therapy gym.

Group therapy sessions are held daily in the gym. With multiple patients undergoing therapy at one time, camaraderie develops among the patients. Patients learn from watching one another rehabilitate and can encourage one another when exercises become tough. Coaches are encouraged to attend group therapy sessions and assist their family member or friend through the exercise session.

Patients become active very quickly after surgery. This is important in preventing complications after a joint replacement. Rehabilitation on the Joint Replacement Center starts the day of surgery with an evaluation from Nurses and Therapists which may include; vital signs, ambulation in the hallway, exercises and sitting up in a bedside recliner chair. This is important to restore normal movement to allow walking and other normal daily activities.
