Physical Therapy treatment for arthritis, can address multiple impairments including loss of motion, strength deficits, and pain. Therapy employs exercise, manual therapy techniques, joint protection instruction and bracing as well as the use of modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat and ice as needed. Our physical therapists can also provide assistance with weight reduction, which has been shown to improve arthritis pain.
Physical therapy is commonly used both before and after arthritis related surgeries and at times may be able to assist with postponing or preventing the need for surgical interventions.
We also offer specific treatment programs (known as Prehab) to prepare individuals for joint replacement surgery and work to support a speedy and successful recovery. These visits provide an overview of the rehabilitation process and introduce you to exercise, assistive device use and other precautions that may be necessary after your surgery.
"Dr. Sean and his team are WONDERFUL! Their personal attention and availability when I need them is what makes this physical therapy experience top-notch. I have and will continue to recommend this team of specialists to everyone I know! Dr. Sean is patient, kind, and his professionalism is not only welcoming but therapeutic on a personal side. He takes the time to get to know his patients and that is so appreciated. I recently had AXL repair surgery and had the privilege of coming pre and post-surgery. The team welcomes me by name every time I walk in the door."
