Joint Replacement Rehabilitation Therapy

The physical therapists at Move Better have advanced training in physical therapy care after joint replacement of the shoulder, hip, and knee. As board-certified orthopedic clinical specialists (OCS), we utilize current, evidence-based post-operative protocols and treatment plans that are customized to help restore your mobility, strength, gait, and return you to active daily living.

Our therapists apply joint replacement rehabilitation treatment plans developed in partnership with many of the local surgeons from Monticello Community Surgery Center, UVA, and Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital. In addition, we keep close communication with you and your physician to ensure appropriate progress and recovery is achieved.

The best results require a partnership between physician, therapist, and patient. At Move Better we believe the more active patients are in their own recovery, the faster they will get better. We emphasize teaching self-care and at-home exercise programs on the first visit. Our home exercise programs are customized with specific text, pictures, and exercise videos for each patient.
