Time is money! I have heard that said a few times. What does that even mean? We are all in the business of selling our time every day as we work and get paid for doing so. We also buy time. For instance, when we have someone else mow our yard or clean our house we are paying for their time to be spent doing something that we don’t want to take the time to do.
When your sick or recovering from a surgery the fact of time is money is never more clear. The longer you are impaired and can not do all the things you need to do the more it costs you. That cost takes many forms. It costs you money as you can’t go back to work, you are paying for medical services for longer and it takes up more of your precious time as you are running back and forth for these services. It costs you quality time with your family and loved ones because you are not recovered enough to do the things you did before.
After a knee surgery, like a total knee replacement, you will spend typically 2 to 3 months recovering if you only use traditional medical and therapy services. That’s a lot of time and money spent. Using the GoKnee device to complement your medical/therapy services will drastically reduce the amount of time you spend recovering. The GoKnee device can cut your recovery time in half. What would it mean to you to be finished with your therapy services and follow up visits to your MD in 1 month instead of the traditional 3 month period. What if you could complete your rehab in 6 visits to a therapist instead of 12-16 visits? That shortened period of time means you get to go back to doing what you want to be doing faster. You don’t have to take time out of your day to travel to therapy appointments. You have more control over your recovery and you will spend less money doing it.
Even if your insurance covers your rehab fully there will be a limit to the amount of therapy services they will pay. If you use up all of your insurance outpatient coverage with your total knee rehab what will you do if you need services for something else later in the year? By spending a little money on a tool that cuts your recovery time in half you are actually saving yourself money and time in the long run. Time is money. How much is your time worth?
