Let us help you prepare!
After enduring the pain of osteoarthritis and making the decision to undergo knee or hip replacement surgery, some people worry that post-surgery rehabilitation will be yet another challenge. Focusing on “prehab” allows patients to prepare physically and mentally for the road ahead. In the Center for Health & Fitness Prehab Exercise Program, a Medical Exercise Specialist guides participants through specific exercises to help them better prepare their mind, body, and muscles for surgery, recover faster, and in some cases shorten their hospital stay after surgery.
They will receive the following:
When: Mondays and Wednesdays from 10am-10:55am (beginning February 13th, 2023)
Where: CHF Clubhouse/hybrid
Instructor: Medical Exercise Specialist
Training Sessions: 12 sessions, Free Basic membership to CHF during the program
