There was no avoiding it. The surgery was necessary. Now what?
Did you know that physical therapy after surgery is the best way to maximize the gains you received from surgery?
how we help
The reason for orthopedic surgery is to fix the structure so you can regain physical function. When a knee joint fails, surgery replaces the broken structure with an artificial knee joint. The hope is that the new structure will return your physical function so you can do all the things you love to do.
While surgery can be absolutely necessary, there is no guarantee that addressing the structure will result in improved physical function and a return to the activities you love. Instead, surgery repairs or replaces the damaged structure and makes it possible for you to start regaining the physical function you need to return to the activities you want to do.
Studies have repeatedly shown that physical therapy after surgery is the best way to improve physical function and return to the activities you love. Without physical therapy after surgery, patients are more likely to experience prolonged recovery, failure to return to activities, re-injury and depression.
If your surgeon has not already prescribed physical therapy as part of your recovery, talk to them about this as an option and see what they recommend for your particular circumstances.

When I came in I was having a hard time turning my neck which made it difficult when driving. A huge thank you to Sally and her team for fixing me up! My mobility has improved and I’m free of pain and able to do everything I could before this injury!
