Practice Plus Group’s free Pocket Physio app is an easy to use guide to the physiotherapy exercises you need to do to prepare for, and recover from, hip or knee replacement surgery as well as foot and hand surgery.
The app provides videos and text instructions on pre- and post-operative physio exercises, enabling you to establish a strong exercise regime before surgery that you can also continue afterwards, helping you to make a speedy recovery. You can even plan your own physio exercise regime using the reminder function.
Pocket Physio includes advice on hip precautions, breathing exercises, self-assessment, managing pain, and walking with a frame or crutches. There are also techniques to make dressing, bathing and getting in and out of vehicles easier as you recuperate.
