My elderly mother is going to have knee replacement surgery soon.  Will physical therapy be part of her rehabilitation?

Often patients who undergo knee replacement surgery are referred to physical therapy by their surgeon. The physical therapist will perform treatments to decrease pain and swelling, instruct patients in exercises to increase range of motion and strength, and teach patients proper walking patterns and other functional tasks. For more information, call Jim at 424-8175.

I get pain in the front of my knee while cycling on my new road bike. It is beginning to limit how far I can cycle. Can physical therapy help me?

One possible cause of you knee pain may be a bike seat that is too low. A physical therapist could help with the fit of your bike to eliminate you knee pain and prevent future problems in other areas. A physical therapist could also design a training program to help you reach your cycling goals without injuring yourself. For more information, call Jim at 424-8175.

My daughter recently hurt her ankle playing basketball.  She was examined at a local emergency care center and diagnosed with a sprain.  Would physical therapy help?

Physical therapy following ankle sprains can be very beneficial.  A physical therapist would perform a complete musculoskeletal exam to identify structures that have been injured.  He would then design a treatment plan to address her functional limitations created by the injury.  The physical therapist would also design activities and exercises to prevent future injuries to her ankle.  Call Jim at STARS at 424-8175.
