Solutions for Postsurgical Pain and Dysfunction
Millions of people have orthopedic surgery for various musculoskeletal problems. Due to our aging population and improvements in technology and surgical techniques, total joint replacements are quite common. In fact, more than 600,000 knee replacements and 285,000 hip replacements were performed in the United States last year. Add in all the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and ankle surgeries and you can easily see the need for postsurgical physical therapy to relieve pain and restore functional capabilities.
Studies have shown that early intervention by a qualified physical therapist can help postsurgical orthopedic patients look forward to reduced pain, improved function and faster recovery with less likelihood of recurring problems. At Cornerstone Physical Therapy Associates, our highly trained and credentialed physical therapists use evidence-based treatment protocols to achieve the best results.
