Joint Replacement Physical Therapy

Physical therapists play a critical role in helping patients recover and regain functional mobility after joint replacement surgery, such as total knee or hip, or shoulder replacement.

The main goal of physical therapy after joint replacement surgery is to help patients regain strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the affected joint. The physical therapist will work with the patient to develop an individualized rehabilitation program, which may include:

  1. Exercise: The physical therapist will design a program of exercises that focus on improving strength, flexibility, and range of motion. The exercises may include leg lifts, heel slides, and ankle pumps, among others.

  2. Walking and mobility training: The therapist will teach the patient how to walk with crutches, a walker, or a cane. They may also work on balance and coordination training to reduce the risk of falls.

  3. Pain management: The therapist may use various techniques to manage pain, such as ice or heat therapy, massage, or electrical stimulation.

  4. Education: The therapist will educate the patient on proper joint protection techniques and lifestyle modifications that may help prevent further joint damage.

    Our physical therapist will monitor the patient's progress and make adjustments to the rehabilitation program as needed. They will also communicate with the patient's surgeon and other healthcare providers to ensure a coordinated and effective recovery plan.

Physical therapy is an essential part of the recovery process after joint replacement surgery and can help patients achieve optimal outcomes in terms of pain reduction, improved mobility, and enhanced quality of life.

Tennis Elbow Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is an important part of the treatment plan for tennis elbow. The goals of physical therapy for tennis elbow are to reduce pain and inflammation, improve range of motion and flexibility, and strengthen the forearm muscles. Here are some common physical therapy techniques used for tennis elbow:

  1. Eccentric exercises: These exercises involve slowly lowering weight while extending the wrist, which helps to strengthen the forearm muscles.

  2. Stretching: Gentle stretching exercises can help to improve flexibility and reduce tension in the forearm muscles.

  3. Massage therapy: Massage therapy can help to reduce pain and inflammation and improve circulation to the affected area.

  4. Ultrasound therapy: This type of therapy uses high-frequency sound waves to promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation.

  5. Cold laser therapy: This therapy uses low-level laser light to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in the affected area.

  6. Electrical stimulation: Electrical stimulation uses a small electric current to stimulate the muscles, which can help to reduce pain and promote healing.

    Our physical therapist will create a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs and the severity of your tennis elbow. It is important to follow the treatment plan closely and communicate with our therapist about any changes in symptoms or progress.
