In brief: Structured

Therapy after joint replacement is very structured and started almost immediately after surgery.
Depending on the joint, usually a cpm (continuous passive motion) machine is utilized to help maintain range of motion. Later, resistance exercises are started to build/maintain strength. Check with your orthopedist for your specific situation.
