Ankle Arthroscopy and Reconstruction
Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that orthopaedic surgeons use to treat problems in the ankle joint. Ankle arthroscopy uses a thin fiber-optic camera (arthroscope) that can magnify and transmit images of the ankle to a video screen. Ankle arthroscopies can reduce ankle pain and improve overall function. Ankle reconstruction is a surgery to tighten and firm up one or more ankle ligaments on the outside of your ankle. It's also known as the Brostrom procedure. It's most often done as an outpatient surgery, so you can go
Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill
The Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill uses air pressure to help unweight the patient. This allows the lower body to be enclosed and supported by the air pressure. ... Once the machine has calibrated to the individual, the body support percentage can be adjusted as desired.
Body Composition Testing/Nutritional Consultation
Body composition testing provides the precise breakdown of fat mass vs. muscle mass in the body, where each is stored, and any corresponding health risks. Armed with that information, nutritional consultation can offer tailored, effective lifestyle and nutritional changes for better health outcomes.
Concussion Management with Impact Testing
ImPACT testing is a neurocognitive screening tool to assess and manage concussions. The program offers baseline and post-injury testing of verbal and visual memory, reaction times, and processing speed in order to specifically evaluate a concussion’s effects and inform treatment decisions.
Flexibility exercises help maintain and improve the length, range, and elasticity of the muscles and connective tissue, simultaneously supporting range of motion, muscle limberness, and skeletal/joint health. Flexibility is essential in maintaining physical wellbeing with age.
Fracture care should be specific to the type and cause of fracture — e.g., simple, complex, or burst; caused by injury or osteoporosis; on the bone, joint surface, or clavicle. Treating fractures involves realigning and stabilizing the bone and giving it time to heal, while also managing pain and taking measures to maintain/restore function.
Functional Movement Screen
The functional movement screen is a diagnostic assessment that utilizes seven fundamental movement patterns to spot any instabilities, imbalances, and asymmetries. The screen can assess risk for musculoskeletal injury, and inform specific interventions to therefore prevent injury.
Functional Movement Training
Functional movement training is a fitness approach that that works multiple muscle groups at once to build balanced, holistic strength; improve daily movement patterns; and prevent injury. In addition to strength, functional movement training improves proprioception, coordination, and neuromuscular wellness.
Gait training is a specific type of physical therapy to improve mobility and balance and safely develop a healthy walking pattern, particularly after injury or illness. By improving overall mobility and encouraging physical activity, gait training also provides a boost to overall health.
Injury assessment provides a thorough evaluation of one’s medical vital signs; pain level (quality and severity of pain, what provoked it and when); and the “six Ps”: pain, pallor, paresthesia, pulses, paralysis, and pressure. Whether a traumatic/acute or chronic injury, this assessment will inform the treatment plan.
Massage is a manual therapy to reduce pain and tension through the manipulation of the muscles and other soft tissue. In addition to physical benefits, massage therapy has been shown to reduce stress and boost immune function, leading it be recommended to those being treated for conditions such as cancer and fibromyalgia, as well as musculoskeletal pain.
A revision arthroplasty is a surgery to fully or partially replace (reoperate) a prosthetic joint from a previous joint replacement, whether due to wear and tear, infection, or an imperfect fit. For example, a hip revision arthroplasty repairs or replaces components from an original hip replacement surgery.
Sports Certified Physical Therapy
Sports certified physical therapy is a specialized, board-certified area of physical therapy geared toward athletes of all levels (through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties). In addition to acute care and injury management/rehabilitation, it requires prevention and education in order to identify and address underlying conditions, not just treat symptoms.
Strength and Conditioning
Strength and conditioning training aims to reduce risk of injury and improve functional fitness and athletic performance by improving the quality of movement. Physical therapy and strength and conditioning training are mutually beneficial and often go hand-in-hand.
Unicompartment Partial Knee Arthroplasty
A unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (partial knee replacement) is an orthopedic surgery to treat osteoarthritis in the knee, possible when damage is only in one component of the knee. The procedure replaces/resurfaces the damaged bone and cartilage with metal and plastic prosthetics, leaving the healthy remainder of the knee. The pain, recovery, and incisions are significantly less severe than with a full knee replacement.
Anterior Hip Replacement
A hip replacement is a surgical procedure to treat hip pain and discomfort by removing damaged bone and cartilage from the hip joint and replacing them with artificial implants. An anterior hip replacement is a type of hip replacement surgery in which a surgeon makes a small incision near the front of the hip to access the hip joint. This technique is minimally invasive and often leads to a quicker recovery than other hip replacement methods.
Arthroscopic Acl Repair
During arthroscopic ACL reconstruction, the surgeon makes several small incisions—usually two or three—around the knee. Sterile saline (salt) solution is pumped into the knee through one incision to expand it and to wash blood from the area. This allows the doctor to see the knee structures more clearly.
Arthroscopic Joint Repair - Hip/Knee
Arthroscopic Joint Repair of the hip and knee is a minor outpatient surgery used to treat individuals with an injured, inflamed, or damaged hip or knee joint. During an arthroscopic procedure, a surgeon will insert a small fiber-optic camera, known as an arthroscope, through a small incision to view and repair the affected area.
Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is a type of shoulder surgery used to repair a tear of the rotator cuff in your shoulder. Shoulder arthroscopy uses small incisions and special equipment to view and repair an injury, and is considered less-invasive than traditional open surgery.
Arthroscopic Shoulder Repair
Arthroscopic Shoulder Repair is a minor outpatient surgery used to treat individuals with an injured, inflamed, or damaged shoulder joint. During an arthroscopic procedure, a surgeon will insert a small fiber-optic camera, known as an arthroscope, through a small incision to view and repair the affected area.
Cartilage Injury Repair
Cartilage injury repair is the process of healing and regenerating damage to cartilage, an essential connective tissue of the joints. Based on the severity of the cartilage injury, repair may range from rest to corticosteroid injections to surgical procedures like implants and grafts, or microfracture and drilling to promote regrowth.
Follow Up Care After Orthopedic Surgery
Follow-up care after orthopedic surgery generally involves immediate at-home care such as icing and dressing the wound; carefully paced mobility and physical therapy exercises; in some cases, managing medical equipment and medication; and in-office follow-ups with the doctor.
Hand repair is a type of surgery that treats both acute and chronic conditions of the hand, wrist, and forearm. Hand repair surgery includes procedures such as hand reconstruction (e.g., after an injury), nerve repair, and tendon repair. Its aim is to restore function to the extremity.
Meniscal surgery is a procedure to treat a torn meniscus in the knee, either by repairing the tear or by removing all or part of the meniscus. Meniscal tears are generally first treated with physical therapy, but if the tear does not heal (or from the start in severe cases), meniscal surgery may be recommended.
Partial Knee Replacement
A partial knee replacement is an orthopedic surgery to treat osteoarthritis in the knee, possible when damage is only in one component of the knee. The procedure replaces/resurfaces the damaged bone and cartilage with metal and plastic prosthetics, leaving the healthy remainder of the knee. The pain, recovery, and incisions are significantly less severe than with a full knee replacement.
Shoulder Repair & Replacement
Shoulder repair and replacement surgeries (shoulder arthroplasty) treat shoulder injuries by replacing damaged parts with prosthetic components. Surgery is typically called for in cases of severe breaks and arthritis, or when physical therapy and other interventions are not effective.
SLAP repair (or SLAP tear surgery, for superior labrum anterior to posterior) is a shoulder surgery to repair damage to the cartilage ring of the shoulder socket (labrum), which can result from overuse or from acute injury. The procedure is performed as a minimally invasive arthroscopy.
Total Knee Replacement
A total knee replacement (arthroplasty) is an orthopedic surgery to remove severely damaged bone and cartilage of the knee, often caused by osteoarthritis, and replace it with metal, polymer, and plastic prosthetics. Knee replacement surgery drastically improves mobility and reduces pain.
Foot reconstruction surgery can correct disorders, injuries, and deformities in the bones, muscles, and ligaments of the foot and ankle in order to restore function. Issues treated by foot reconstruction include heel/bone spurs, plantar fasciitis, infections, arthritis, flat feet, and hammer toe.
Ligament reconstruction is a surgical procedure to repair or replace a damaged ligament. Ligaments are tough, elastic connective tissues that stabilize and support joints. An injury or tear to a ligament causes pain, loss of range of motion and movement, and destabilization of the joint.
