Relieving pain is an essential part of any joint replacement surgical plan. The benefits of pain relief include:

  • Increased patient comfort. Every joint replacement patient has some degree of post-operative pain, and effectively managing that pain can significantly affect patient comfort.
  • Earlier rehabilitation. A patient whose pain is under control and is more likely to get out of bed and perform rehabilitation exercises. When done under the guidance and supervision of a surgeon and physical therapist, post-surgical exercise can help reduce the development of scar tissue, increase range of motion, and increase the likelihood a successful recovery.
