Rotator Cuff Repairs
Often confused with ‘rotator cup’, the rotator cuff tear is one of the most common conditions affecting the shoulder. The goal of Physical therapy is to improve the function of the muscles surrounding the shoulder. Physical therapists will help to strengthen these muscles and improve the mechanics of the shoulder joint.
Physical therapy will assist the patient in returning to an active lifestyle following an ACL tear. The main goals a Physical therapist will help to accomplish during the rehabilitation process is to protect the reconstructed ACL, reduce inflammation and pain, restore the natural range of motion of the knee, and provide strength training.
Total Knee Replacement
There have been vast improvements in total knee replacement (TKR) surgery. With newer implant designs and improved surgical techniques, TKR can be expected to function well for at least 15 to 20 years in more than 85-90% of patients. Physical therapy after a total knee replacement can help patients maximize their mobility after surgery to assist in a quick and safe return to normal activity and function. Proper rehabilitation after TKR is essential to recovery—a Physical therapist will work with patients with range-of-motion exercises, strengthening exercises, balance training, and functional training.
