Physical therapy for Othopaedic issues focus on the treatment or rehab of injuries to the orthopedic system, which includes muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Physical Therapy is often helpful in the treatment of orthopedic conditions that can cause pain, decreased strength, decreased range of motion, or swelling.
What are the most common orthopedic surgeries requiring post-operative physical therapy?
The most common surgeries requiring post-operative physical therapy would be for the knees and shoulders. Today, most knee and shoulder surgeries are performed arthroscopically. Some specific surgeries for the knee would be ACL reconstruction, meniscectomy, meniscus repair, and lateral release of the patella.
Common surgeries for the shoulder would be rotator cuff repair, acromioplasty (shaving of bone spurs on the acromion), SLAP repair, and capsular tightening for loose shoulder joints.
In addition, joint replacement surgeries such as total knee replacements and total hip replacements often need post surgical outpatient physical therapy.
