JOINT REPLACEMENT!

“When am I Ready?”

Ask yourself the following Questions?

  • Do you limit the types of activities you do because you have pain, burning or stiffness in your knee, hip, ankle or shoulder?
  • Is it difficult to get up after sitting or being still for a period of time?
  • Are the number of your daily activities limited (i.e. going to the shops, out to dinner, or meeting with friends) because of discomfort or stiffness in the joint?
  • Have you tried over the counter and/or prescription medications to help alleviate discomfort but they are no longer working?
  • Do you have trouble falling asleep at night because of joint discomfort?
  • Do you have regular pain during the day and night?
  • Is your movement of the painful joint limited?
  • Do you have osteoarthritis of the joint?
  • Have you had previous surgery to the joint?
  • Is your joint changing shape? (Deformity)
  • Have you tried physiotherapy?
If you answered YES to the majority of the above and in discussion with your Physiotherapist, GP and Orthopaedic Surgeon you are probably ready to start the process of a joint replacement!
