Are you ready to rehabilitate after total hip replacement in a whole new way?
Many people think that immediately after they have a painful joint replaced
that all their problems will be solved. This hidden thought process can often leave people
feeling discourage and depressed until they realize that the years of painful movement patterns
leading up to surgery are major contributors to continuing problems.
The Rehabilitative Tai Chi for Total Hip Replacement program begins
immediately after surgery with attention to decreasing lower extremity swelling
and painlessly re-activating muscle function. Progressive in nature, this program
guides total hip recipients, Tai Chi teachers, and rehabilitation professionals
through holistic movements designed to speed healing and quickly restore function.
Research has shown that Tai Chi not only enhances strength, flexibility, balance,
and sleep quality but also reduces anxiety and depression.
The Rehabilitative Tai Chi for Total Hip Replacement streaming program
contains over 70 minutes of video, progressing participants through supine, sitting,
standing, stepping, walking, and form practices. Not exclusive to total hip replacement,
this program is also extremely valuable following general surgeries
and as an adjunct to traditional rehabilitative care.
