    “It is very important.  It is critical that the patient get therapy at the beginning of their recovery, but they can do it on their own as they get to the end of their recovery. The reason it is so important in the beginning is because you’re trying to make sure that they get back to full mobility as quickly as possible as well as to get the swelling down, which is what the therapy can help with.  It is also great to get them started and motivated in the strengthening which ultimately can provide them with support for the joint.” Orthopaedic Surgeon
