Your knees are a pivotal part of your body. Whether you are moving around your home, walking down a flight of stairs, going for a walk or exercising the condition of your knees will impact your experience.
There are over 600,000 knee replacements (total knee arthroplasty) performed each year. The procedure essentially replaces all the damaged parts of your knee with an artificial joint. Most patients experience great satisfaction with the surgery – but not without putting forth some effort.
Physical therapy is your path to recovery and wellbeing after knee replacement.
Physical therapy after knee replacement begins immediately following surgery to reduce pain and swelling. Once you are cleared by your physician for outpatient physical therapy the doctors at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation will work with you to achieve the lifestyle you enjoy.
The journey begins with small goals such as getting out of bed, standing up, walking with support and moving your leg. Your physical therapist will work with you to create a personalized plan for recovery. This plan will include exercises designed to improve your range of motion, stability, strength and flexibility. They will work with you at our facility and give you exercises to perform at home.
Here at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation the physical therapists are dedicated to working with you to achieve a full recovery. They will not let you lose sight of your goals and will support you every step of the way.
