Studies have shown that how soon a patient begins moving after orthopedic surgery directly affects speed of recovery. The Gym Joint at Capital Regional Medical Center allows orthopedic patients a head-start on rehabilitation during their hospital stay. The Gym Joint was created to help patients gain confidence in their journey to full recovery. Patients that meet specific criteria can begin work with our physical therapy staff using light stretching, mat exercises and low impact equipment.
“l'm thrilled to say that my choice to have my surgery done at Capital Regional was the best decision I could have made. I have told everyone what a wonderful experience it was.”
— Mary Barley, Joint Replacement Patient at Capital Regional Medical Center
