Top Ten Ways To Enhance Your Recovery After Joint Replacement Surgery

  1. Eat healthier: START consuming more plant-based foods and more protein in the weeks before surgery and STOP consuming processed food that have empty calories and a high sugar content.
  2. Add vitamins and supplements in the weeks before surgery: We recommend Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin B and Zinc. These will help boost your immunity.
  3. Increase your consumption of anti-oxidants in the weeks before surgery. Blueberries and blackberries are an excellent source.
  4. Reduce alcohol consumption in the weeks before surgery.
  5. Try to lose some weight if you are above ideal body weight. Excess weight increases your risk of infection.
  6. Build muscle strength in your arms and legs. The stronger you are going into surgery, the stronger you will be coming out.
  7. Drink more water and less soda. Soda contains sugars and other chemicals that promote inflammation.
  8. Consume more foods rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These can also reduce inflammation. Cold water fish and walnuts are a great natural source.
  9. Try to sleep more in the weeks leading up to surgery. Sleep helps reduce stress and anxiety and promotes better healing.
  10. Try to stop using any prescription pain medications in the weeks prior to surgery. Building up a tolerance to these before surgery will make them less effective after surgery.
