It is essential to take care of your joints after a surgery. Joints are the synovial structures that connect bones with each other. They have cartilages, ligaments, and a very thin layer of smooth tissue that acts as a protective shield and lubricant. Joints allow you to bend, move and walk around easily but when they are injured or undergo a surgery, it becomes difficult for them to function properly. It is vital for you to protect the joints from further damage.
