Postsurgical Rehab Program

ProCare for postsurgical rehab

Millions of people have surgery for shoulder, back, elbow, wrist, hip, knee or foot/ankle problems sometime during their lives. A growing number have had total joint replacements or reconstructive orthopedic surgery for musculoskeletal problems.

At ProCare Physical Therapy, we create customized postsurgical rehab programs designed to improve patient function while reducing pain and the chance of reinjury. Orthopedic injuries can all benefit from early intervention by a qualified physical therapist. A combination of evidence-based treatment and effective functional manual care eases pain, speeds recovery and improves function.

Help for many postsurgical challenges

We offer focused, hands-on care for many postoperative challenges, including:

  • Postsurgical shoulder rehab & knee rehabilitation (including ACL rehabilitation)
  • Neck and shoulder pain, rotator cuff injury
  • Nonoperative pain or injury (bursitis, tendonitis, etc.)
  • Hip pain & postsurgical rehab
  • Chronic back pain & acute back & neck problems (including lower back pain treatment)
  • Wrist & hand pain & postsurgical rehab (including carpal tunnel treatment)
  • Foot & ankle pain, including treatment for plantar fasciitis, treatment for arthritis & ankle sprains
  • Sports-related injuries & fractures
  • Total joint replacements (hip, knee & shoulder)
  • Back & neck surgery

Total joint replacements are becoming more and more common, particularly in older people with arthritic joints. Over 500,000 total joint replacements are performed in the United States annually.

We take an evidence-based approach to orthopaedic postsurgical rehab and address underlying sources of pain and dysfunction. We combine specific functional exercise with orthopedic physical therapy to optimize joint mobility, reduce pain, increase range of motion, control inflammation and facilitate normal movement.

The gravity of postsurgical exercise

We also use the GRAVITY¬ģ System for some postsurgical patients who need more effective, faster rehabilitation. The GRAVITY System works muscles as they are used in life. Exercise accommodates full joint range of motion in all three functional planes based on natural movement patterns and proper biomechanics.

We have a unique understanding of postoperative pain, differences in patient healing and maximum potential for restored function. We educate patients about their bodies and conditions so they can play active roles in physical therapy for faster, lasting results. Shorter rehab times and better surgical outcomes are good news for patients and physicians.
