Fitness Tips for Weight Loss

Mind and Body Fitness Tips to Fight Obesity

Although weight loss may not be easy, the science behind it is fairly simple. When weight loss is needed for joint or knee problems, the process of losing weight is complicated. Knee problems require a whole-body weight-loss plan with emphasis on a restricted-calorie diet, low-impact exercise, and supportive self-care aimed at ensuring proper rest and emotional wellness.

Reduce Swelling after Knee Replacement Surgery

Immediately following knee replacement, pain and swelling make regaining range of motion a challenge. The swelling inhibits movement as the knee area is bulkier, tender and just not as mobile as it would be without the swelling. And as time goes by the fluid surrounding your knee can create scar tissue, which may permanently impede flexibility if left untreated. Our immediate objective with physical therapy is to reduce swelling after knee replacement while we reconnect the brain to leg muscles, get those muscles “firing”, and get range of motion back again.
