Osteoarthritis can be a very painful and debilitating condition. It often requires surgery to correct, the most common types being hip and knee replacement.

In the US alone, there are an average of 600,000 knee replacement procedures conducted every year. Lessening the pain and shortening the recovery time is primarily dependent on the fitness and activity level of the individual. Healthier people recover faster from surgery and fitter people end up being able to use their replaced joints sooner than those who aren’t active.

The problem is that many people don’t know the best way to physically prepare for getting joint replacement surgery. This course aims to answer just that. As a personal trainer you can help a client prior to a procedure and post rehab and this course will set you in the right direction to recover quickly and effectively.
