Many times, after surgery, physicians refer patients to our physical therapy practice with the goals of recovering strength, function, and mobility.  Our therapists provide one-on-one, evidence-based physical therapy treatment sessions to help facilitate your recovery and return to activities of daily living (ADLs), work, recreational activities, and even competitive sports.  During the course of your recover, we maintain regular communication with your surgeon to ensure your progress matches your surgeon's expected outcome.

THE REHABILITATIVE PROCESS DEPENDS ON THE INJURY AND TYPE OF SURGERY. WE HELP PATIENTS RECOVER AND REHABILITATE FROM A VARIETY OF ORTHOPEDIC POST-OPERATIVE JOINT REPLACEMENT, TENDON, AND LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTIVE PROCEDURES, INCLUDING:
  • Knee, hip, and shoulder joint replacements

  • Reconstruction of any one or more of the four major knee ligaments: anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and lateral collateral ligament (LCL)

  • Arthroscopic knee surgeries (such as meniscectomies, meniscal repairs, etc.)

  • Ligament and tendon repair, including Achilles tendon repairs

  • Arthroscopic hip surgeries (such as labral repairs)

  • Nerve releases (such as cubital tunnel, radial tunnel, carpal tunnel, tarsal tunnel, etc.)

  • Neck and back surgery (such as fusions, laminectomy, decompression, and discectomy)

  • Nerve compression release

  • Bone or joint fusion (arthrodesis)

  • Tendon transfers

  • Surgical fixation of fractures, including open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), a two-part surgery used to fix broken bones where the broken bone is reduced (put back into place) and an internal fixation device is placed on the bone (e.g., screws, plates, rods, or pins) to hold the bone together

  • Shoulder post-surgical recover for rotator cuff tears, labral tears, superior labrum anterior and posterior (SLAP) tear or lesion, arthroscopy, and more.

Some of the treatments used to accomplish the goal of regaining movement and reducing pain, swelling, and stiffness, may include one or more of the following:

  • Manual therapy

  • Soft tissue and/or joint mobilization

  • Muscle energy

  • Gait and balance training

  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) - electrical muscle & nerve stimulation

  • Therapeutic exercise and functional strength training

  • Ultrasound

  • Functional re-education

  • Rehabilitative exercises to help increase strength, endurance, motion, balance, and coordination.
