Motion Physical Therapy in The Woodlands, TX, Features Joint Replacement Recovery Program

Each year more than one million Americans have a hip or knee replacement.  Are you a person planning to replace one of these joints?  If so, Motion Physical Therapy can help you as you recover!

Joint replacement surgery is considered when there is severe pain or dysfunction in a joint, which can be caused by damage and wearing of the cartilage, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, trauma to the joint or even long term misalignment of the joint.  When one or more of these things occurs, the joint that has been affected will be replaced by an orthopedic prosthesis that will allow more normal function, with far less pain.

Physical Therapy is a critical part of the recovery process.  At Motion Physical Therapy, we will work closely with you and your physician to assist you in obtaining optimal joint motion, and we will help you to reestablish good muscle strength.  We frequently work with patients who have had total shoulder replacements, reverse total shoulder replacements, elbow replacements, total hip replacements, partial and total knee replacements, ankle replacements, and even finger replacements.  If you are planning any of these joint replacement surgeries, we can help you return to healthier, pain free activity and an improved quality of life after your operation.

Our program is run by a highly trained physical therapist with more than twenty years of rehabilitation experience.  He will assess and design an individualized treatment program to ensure the maximum amount of recovery for you in the shortest possible amount of time.  Some of our state of the art equipment and techniques used in the rehabilitation process include:

  • Class IV and Class III laser
  • Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization that enable our therapist to treat the soft tissue restrictions that affect normal function
  • Kinesiotaping to assist with the reduction of swelling
  • Body weight support unweighting system to assist with walking
  • Myofascial release
  •  Underwater treadmill and individualized pool with ground level access
