Orthopedic injuries vary in severity and medical management. Some injuries require surgical repair, while others are managed through traction, casting or splinting. Rehabilitation programs are specialized for each individual to meet the needs of the injury and method of repair.
Following a joint replacement procedure such as a total knee or total hip, your orthopedic surgeon will set the pace of progression of weight-bearing activities. Specialized routines are established for progression of mobility and function. Total ankle replacements and total shoulder replacements are reviewed on an individual basis.
