Aquatic therapy for TKR and THR
Patients who have just undergone a Total Hip or Total Knee Replacement have "problems" you know how to solve.

Recent research shows the pool can be the perfect place to be for the first month or so after surgery.

But many MDs don't think pool. So they neglect one of best options for THR and for TKR  immediately post-op.

No more! Come hear Dr. Bruce Becker and physical therapist Andrea Salzman make an evidence-based case...and learn loads of lab ideas for this population.
