Total Knee Replacement-At Home Therapy

Following Total Knee Replacement, continuing therapy at home is very important. You will be given a home exercise program during your time in therapy to perform on days that you are not in clinic. These exercises help to reinforce the progress you make during therapy and allow you to progress to more difficult exercises while in clinic.

Steve Knee Replacement

After years of playing softball and refereeing basketball, Steve Lovvorn had worn his right knee out.  His doctor recommended replacement and he agreed. When his doctor asked where he wanted to do his physical therapy, Steve said it was an easy choice.  Steve had done therapy before at Elite PT and Balance for both rotator cuff repairs he had done years earlier.

Total Knee Replacement In Clinic

On your first day of therapy, you will meet with a Physical Therapist to evaluate your post-surgical knee. This will include assessment of your surgical incision, any bandage changes per your doctor, assessment of swelling, and range of motion measurements. We can even help your physician monitor your blood clotting time to regulate medication which decreases chances of blood clots.

Bill Anderson uses Dry Needling

Bill Anderson loves to fish, but recently developed “Fishing Elbow,” otherwise known as Tennis Elbow. Tennis Elbow is a repetitive movement strain injury that required treatment for relief, and Bill opted for our dry needling option for quicker relief.

When dry needling, our physical therapist takes a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate deep myofascial trigger points.
