Excellence in pre- & postsurgical rehabilitation.
One of the greatest advances in the field of orthopedics during the 20th century is the artificial joint. With its invention and subsequent use in replacing badly damaged or worn knee, shoulder, and hip joints, the artificial joint has given many people a new lease on life and restored a level of mobility that would not have been possible a few decades ago.
Restoring function & mobility.
Over 500,000 American adults have joint replacement surgery each year. Thanks to some of the greatest orthopedic technological advances in history, people are receiving brand-new hips, knees, and shoulders in growing numbers.
But what happens after this surgery – or any orthopedic surgery? How do you regain your ability to move properly? How do you reduce or eliminate your postsurgical pain?
When you have pain and immobility, you need help regaining your freedom of movement without pain. At Arizona Orthopedic Physical Therapy (AZOPT) in Goodyear or Scottsdale, Arizona, our skilled, highly credentialed physical therapists help by restoring strength and motion to your shoulders, hips, knees and your life.
We use comprehensive hands-on manual therapy techniques and proven treatments to treat pain and lost function caused by joint replacement surgery, knee ACL reconstruction, or shoulder rotator cuff repair, to name just a few.
By combining experienced care with our one-on-one, hands-on patient focus, we can help achieve better results for you more quickly. Our physical therapists will thoroughly evaluate your health and pain history. This evaluation gives us a thorough understanding of your pain and any functional difficulties you are experiencing.
We’ll ask you questions. What makes your pain better or worse? Which daily activities contribute to your pain? Which daily activities are you unable to participate in?
We check your range of motion, flexibility, strength, posture, gait and other points that may affect your pain experience and then create a customized treatment program based on our findings. Some of the therapies and modalities we use at Arizona Orthopedic Physical Therapy are:
- Manual therapy
- Joint mobilization
- Muscle energy
- Neuromuscular re-education
- Balance & gait training
- Electrical stimulation (TENS)
- Therapeutic exercise & functional strength training
Because no two patients are the same, your specific postsurgical rehabilitation program may use one, two, or several different therapies or modalities to relieve your pain and add flexibility and movement back into your life.
The physical therapists at Arizona Orthopedic Physical Therapy have helped thousands of people recover more quickly after all kinds of orthopedic surgery. We also help people better prepare themselves for surgery with presurgical physical therapy programs designed to help minimize pain and dysfunction after surgery. There is an excellent chance we can help you, too.
