Joint Replacement Therapy Orange Park, Jacksonville & St. Augustine, FL

Joint Replacement Therapy

If you have received a total joint replacement of the knee, hip, or shoulder, physical therapy can benefit you. At Rebound Rehabilitation, we offer joint replacement therapy to those whose mobility is limited due to a replacement procedure.

After a joint replacement surgery, it can be difficult to move around in the ways you used to, or even complete daily tasks that you used to do with ease. Fortunately, our joint replacement therapy services can help relieve your pain and improve your function, so you can get back to your life as quickly as possible.

When is total joint replacement needed?

If you haven’t yet gone through a replacement surgery but you are experiencing chronic joint pain, you may be a candidate for joint replacement. Total joint replacement surgery is typically recommended for those who:

  • Have severe joint damage. This is typically due to arthritic debilitation, either from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Experienced a severe trauma to the joint(s). Some injuries can only be addressed through surgical treatment, depending on how critical the damage was.
  • Live with chronic shooting pains. If your pain is constantly affecting your daily life and no other treatments have seemed to help, your doctor may suggest surgery.

If you believe you may be in need of total joint replacement surgery, it is important to first discuss it with your primary physician. If you have already received total joint replacement surgery, it is likely that your primary physician will refer you to a physical therapist for rehabilitation.

How will joint replacement therapy benefit me?

After receiving your total joint replacement, physical therapy will be an integral part of your healing process. One of our licensed physical therapists will provide a treatment plan for you that will assist in restoring your range of motion, flexibility, strength, endurance, and overall mobility.

Physical therapy treatments can also benefit you both before and after your procedure, in order to make sure that your recovery process is as smooth as possible.

What can I expect?

Your initial appointment will consist of a physical evaluation to determine what course of treatment will be best for your needs. Your physical therapist will create a specialized treatment plan based on your evaluation, aimed at rehabilitation, functional improvement, and bringing you back to your optimum physical health.

At first, your treatment plan will consist of passive physical therapy, which is primarily focused on pain relief and recovery. This may include manual therapy, gentle therapeutic exercises, or any other combination of treatment services that your physical therapist deems for your treatment plan.

After your passive therapy, you will continue into active physical therapy treatments. These will include strengthening exercises that your physical therapist will guide you through, in addition to at-home treatments that you will do on your own.  These will all help in making your recovery as quick and comfortable as possible, all while improving your joint function!If you believe you could benefit from our joint replacement therapy services, don’t hesitate to contact Rebound Rehabilitation today. We will get you back to living life on your own terms as quickly as possible, without the daily worry of pain or limiting joints!
