Physical Therapy after Joint Surgery
Rehabilitation during joint surgery recovery is important for regaining your mobility, healing quickly, and reducing pain. The state-of-the-art, 10,000-square-foot facility at Texas Injury Clinic in Fort Worth, TX, features the latest rehabilitation equipment to help you recover with maximum efficiency. Our team of doctors, led by Dr. Mark Williams, will also provide at-home exercise plans to expedite your recovery.
Physical rehabilitation is essential to recuperating after joint surgeries such as:
- Knee or hip replacement
- Carpal tunnel release
- Back disc surgery
- Treatment of fractured bones (e.g. ankle, wrist, elbow, etc.)
Because every patient has unique needs, no two physical rehabilitation programs are the same. You can count on our caring doctors to create a completely customized physical therapy routine.
The Benefits of Physical Rehabilitation
Physical therapy helps reduce inflammation and discomfort. It also promotes healing in a number of ways, such as aiding circulation and avoiding blood clots immediately following surgery. Most physical therapy routines also retrain muscles, build strength in the joint and surrounding muscles, and minimize scar tissue.
Physical therapy is designed to help you quickly return to the activities you enjoyed before your injury, from gardening and walking to vigorous exercises such as running or skiing. Your physical therapist will continually adjust your routine according to your stage of recovery in order to avoid setbacks and other injuries.
Practicing exercises that are tailored to safely work the muscles that support the treated joint can restore strength and mobility faster. In addition to a faster recovery, physical therapy can reduce pain as you heal.
We have the tools, practitioners, and treatment necessary to help you recover.
Our physical therapy technology includes:
- An upper body ergometer
- Pushing and pulling devices
- Functional capacity devices
We use Cybex® premium strength-building equipment at our practice to make your physical therapy experience as beneficial as possible.
Texas Injury Clinic is equipped to meet all your physical therapy needs following joint surgery. We have the tools, practitioners, and treatment necessary to help you recover. In addition to creating and supervising custom exercise routines, we offer chiropractic treatment and massage therapy.
Chiropractic treatment involves making careful spinal adjustments that promote healing. We can also arrange for a licensed massage therapist to perform treatment that promotes healing and improves range of motion while alleviating pain. Based on your immediate needs, health history, and other factors, we can help determine if these treatments should complement your physical therapy routine.
