Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Orthopedic rehabilitation can reduce pain and restore function to an injured shoulder, knee, or other joint or extremity. ARC Physical Therapy sees patients of all ages and abilities who have an orthopedic injury or have had orthopedic surgery, such as joint replacement, arthroscopy, or fracture repair. As orthopedic physical therapists, we have extensive knowledge and special training to provide the post-operative rehabilitation you need starting immediately after surgery.

Orthopedic rehabilitation typically includes:

Shoulder and knee injuries are some of the most common reasons a person will be referred to a physical therapist for orthopedic rehab. If you need rehabilitation for the shoulder or knee, ARC Physical Therapy is an excellent choice. Our therapists have long-standing relationships with local high schools and colleges and residents in the San Gabriel Valley and Chino Valley.

Shoulder Rehabilitation

The shoulder moves in more directions and to greater extents than any other joint in your body, making it vulnerable to stress and injury. People who play sports like tennis, golf, baseball, basketball, or volleyball commonly experience pain, stiffness, and limited mobility in their shoulder joint as a result of repetitive overhead arm movement. Shoulder conditions that are frequently treated in our orthopedic rehabilitation center include rotator cuff injuries, fractures, dislocations, and joint, nerve, or muscle disorders.

Shoulder rehabilitation may be prescribed before a surgery, after surgery, or as a treatment instead of surgery. After an initial evaluation to determine your baseline abilities and limitations, one of our rehabilitation therapists will create a treatment plan based on your initial condition and goals for recovery.

Knee Rehabilitation

The knee is the largest joint in our body and it is easily injured. Knee problems can occur from injury, aging, “wear and tear,” or degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis. For severe injuries and arthritis, knee replacement surgery or arthroscopy may be the only way to restore function and get lasting pain relief. Our therapists have a lot of experience with knee surgery patients, as well as those who are seeking physical therapy for non-surgical pain relief.

Walking and moving the knee are very important to your recovery. At first, you will need to use a walker or crutches while standing and walking. A physical therapist will help you stand and walk and show you exercises to do at rest that will strengthen your knee and increase flexibility.

As you recover, you may begin using exercise equipment, such as a treadmill or a stationary bike, and we will give you exercises to do at home.

The physical therapists at ARC believe in highly personalized care that promotes a fast and complete recovery. At each visit, we will guide you through your care plan and also show you how to exercise at home. Call us today for an appointment in West Covina, Chino, Glendora, CA.
