Total joint replacement can be performed on any joints of the body, including the hip, knee, ankle, foot, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and fingers. Combined, there are over half a million total hip replacements (THRs) and total knee replacements (TKRs) performed in the United States yearly.
Our physical therapists realize that the ultimate goal is to ensure pain-free function of the joint to improve your quality of life. Postoperative physical therapy is of the utmost importance. Specific treatment techniques will be used to decrease your pain, improve your muscle strength, flexibility, and range of motion. Each individual progresses differently therefore your program will be unique to your needs.
Pre Surgical Treatment
Revolution Physical Therapy not only treats post operative joint replacements, but also offers specific programs pre surgically. Your surgical outcome has a direct relationship to your pre operative state. The stronger and more flexible your muscles are prior to your joint replacement, the more quickly you will be able to recover after your surgery. Our physical therapists work to provide you with a program that will not only help to manage your pain but will aim to get you in the best condition possible before you undergo surgery.
Our treatment plan will focus on the following:
- Decreasing pain and edema (swelling)
- Improving range of motion
- Increasing strength and balance
- Return to function
