Orthopedic & Total Joint Replacement Rehabilitation
Protocols following any orthopedic surgery vary physician to physician. To have continuity of care with the same therapist proving treatment visit after visit ensures not only these protocols are followed, but allows us the ability to accurately assess the patients progress and report back to the surgeon should follow up care be required.
From physical manipulation to the use of ultrasound, heat, cold, or electronic muscle stimulation we are able to follow a specific treatment protocol prescribed by a physician or develop a specific treatment plan under their supervision or consultation.
One component that is often ignored my many treatment facilities is scar massage. If the orthopedic repair is successful but the incision or scar adheres to the structures below the patient outcome can be adversely affected. At Pullano Physical Therapy this is consistently included as part of every orthopedic rehabilitation protocol.
