Selecting a Coach
Each patient will select a coach to help assist them through their joint venture.
This individual will assist, motivate and support you during all phases of your venture, starting with the pre-operative phase and continuing through the months of recovery.
The coach you select must be an individual you can work with and that will motivate you, provide support through the recovery process.
It is important each patient chooses a coach to participate in pre-operative phase as well as the post-operative recovery period. The coach should be an individual that will motivate you during your recovery phase.
Your coach will:
- Support you throughout your total joint experience from pre-admission to recovery at home.
- Keep you motivated.
- Help you with your exercises.
The coach's role is important to your maintaining mobility and key to your success.
