Orthopedics, total joint
and postsurgical rehab.
Patients need effective, comprehensive rehabilitation programs for all orthopedic pre- and postsurgical procedures. Our rehab programs are based on restoring function using evidence-based protocols. These programs are designed to reflect the individual needs of each patient.
Our approach to treatment is to provide an environment that promotes healing and encourages active involvement from each patient. We strive to educate patients about their condition and recovery so they have the tools to help themselves heal.
We also offer preoperative rehabilitation as an alternative for nonsurgical patients who wish to avoid surgery or who plan to undergo surgery in the near future. Total joint replacements are becoming more common, particularly in older people with arthritic joints. The bone ends of our joints are covered with smooth cartilage. Healthy cartilage allows easy, pain-free movement. But cartilage that is damaged by arthritis creates friction and makes joints stiff and painful.
Over 500,000 total joint replacements are now performed in the United States annually. Total joint replacement is one of the great orthopedic surgical advances of this century. It resulted from the pioneering efforts of an orthopedic surgeon who worked with engineers to develop the technology and materials used to make joint replacements for hips, knees and shoulders.
Our mission is to help people function at their best. We want you to move without pain and get stronger so you can avoid future injuries. So what would you like to do again without pain? Play tennis or golf? Run? Walk? Participate in a team sport? Enjoy a hobby? Just get back to living?
We achieve continuity of care in all cases by employing only Illinois-licensed physical therapists and physical therapy assistants with strong training in orthopedic postsurgical rehabilitation. We see patients in one-to-one treatment sessions and are committed to quality care while building patient and physician trust and relationships.
Returning to daily activities without pain is the ultimate goal of your patient’s surgery. Our patient-centered staff is highly trained in rapid return to work, hobbies and sports while protecting the integrity of the surgical repair. Some of the postsurgical challenges we treat include:
:: Rotator cuff repairs (open or arthroscopic)
:: Shoulder impingements & labral tears
:: ACL, MCL, LCL, PCL, meniscus reconstructions
:: Total joint replacements (shoulder, hip & knee)
:: Spinal laminectomy, discectomy & fusion
:: Carpal tunnel release
:: Tennis elbow surgery
:: Achilles & other tendon repairs
