Debbra,
Getting back to you after my elbow replacement. Answering your question on what kind of PT. They have NO PROGRAM!!! I was sure they would but NOTHING. There advice: "carefully and slowly increase your range of motion". The hospital is Kaiser Permanente, Walnut Creek, Ca. I have been happy with Kaiser for all my needs but I am at a loss, as to why NO PT PROGRAM for the ELBOW replacement.

Hi Jim @kramarpie – Like you, I am baffled at no PT recommendation. I'm glad John @johnbishop gave you some ideas for exercise. Meantime, I'll share an experience I had with a TKR. I asked the orthopedic surgeon if he could prescribe "pre-hab" vs. rehab. He happily did it. I bet there are facilities out there that do PT for elbows. Could you ask your doctor to prescribe PT?
