Rehabilitation after joint replacement surgery

 

Following a joint replacement procedure, rehabilitation is critical to returning you to optimal function, including building strength, restoring range of motion and preserving mobility. Our therapists work closely with your orthopaedic surgeon to ensure you achieve the best possible results from your replacement procedure.

 

Sports Injuries

We treat a wide variety of competitive and recreational athletes. Our staff is experienced at evaluating and rehabilitating injuries for a variety of athletic levels and we apply these same skills to you.

 

Spine Therapy

Whether you have had surgery to correct a back or neck problem, or you suffer from pain or loss of function because of a spine condition, our physical therapists will design an exercise treatment program to fit your needs. We offer therapies such as ice, heat, electrical stimulation and traction, manual techniques, Pilates programs, and education to restore a healthy back and neck. With an emphasis on proper posture and body mechanics, core strength, flexibility and stabilization, we can help you return to work, sports and every day activities. Our goal is to provide rehabilitation and education to treat your back and neck now, and to prevent future back and neck problems from occurring.

 

Hand Therapy

We provide comprehensive services for patients with hand injuries, post-operative surgical conditions, or other hand diagnoses. Our certified hand therapists provide thorough evaluation and treatment that may include therapeutic exercise, splinting, functional activities, education, modalities, work conditioning and family training.

 

Women's Health

As women progress through puberty into their childbearing years and beyond, they are faced with unique conditions and bone and joint issues that can interfere with daily activities. Examples may include pelvic floor dysfunction that can lead to pain and incontinence, low back and hip pain associated with pregnancy and overstretched or weakened muscles after childbirth, fibromyalgia and osteoporosis. Our physical therapists can design a program specifically for you to help you maintain a strong and healthy body and manage any related health issues you may face.

 

Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis

Osteoarthritis and osteoporosis are common problems that prevent older individuals from participating in recreational activities, self-care and home maintenance. Our therapists create individualized programs addressing strength, flexibility, posture and balance to facilitate joint mobility, improve bone density, prevent falls and promote an active and healthy lifestyle.

 

Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is a collection of fluid that causes swelling (edema) in the arms and legs. Normally, lymph nodes filter fluid as it flows through them, trapping bacteria, viruses and other foreign substances, which are then destroyed by special while blood cells known as lymphocytes. Without normal lymph drainage, fluid can build up in the affected arm or leg, and lymphedema can develop. We are proud to offer lymphedema therapy provided by certified lymphedema therapists with extensive clinical experience.

Rehabilitation for diagnoses such as stroke, cancer and general surgical conditions

Often, the effects of a stroke, cancer, traumatic head injury or other surgical conditions can take a significant amount of time to fully recover from. In addition to our Inpatient Rehabilitation Program, our outpatient physical and occupational therapists offer patients who no longer need intensive daily therapy ongoing therapeutic support. We work closely with your care team to ensure your recovery stays on track.

 

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder assessment and treatment

Disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can be the result of injury to the jaw; injures to muscles of the head and neck such as whiplash or a heavy blow; teeth clenching or grinding; osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis; stress or dislocation of the soft cushion between the ball and socket of the joint. Our therapists can assess your condition and provide treatment options to alleviate pain.

 

Pilates for rehabilitation

Pilates techniques can be used to rehabilitate many orthopaedic and neurological disorders such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, knee conditions, shoulder conditions and spinal conditions. Pilates is also effective in post-operative rehabilitation for patients recovering from back, hip or knee surgery by allowing patients to move earlier without pain, they can begin recovery more quickly. Pilates can also help prevent many orthopaedic injuries, as most injuries are caused by overuse or poor movement patterns, which cause pain. Pilates is unique in that it is a neuromuscular exercise, which means that it reeducates your body’s movement patterns to resolve poor or pain-causing movements.
