Knees can see forces from 2 up to 5 times your body weight with physical activity. By losing 10 pounds you can take 30 pounds of force off your knees.

If you experience numbness and tingling into the pinky and ring fingers, avoid a lot of elbow bending and leaning on the elbow to protect your ulnar nerve.

Don't jump into a new exercise program too quickly; always progress slowly and let your muscles, joints and bones adapt to the new stresses.

Post Surgical



Recovering from surgery can be a slow process.  Although you may be eager to return to your regular activities as soon as possible, you must approach your recovery with care so as not to damage healing areas, or overuse muscles that have either been weakened or are newly active post surgery.  A proper physical therapy regimen will aid in a quicker, healthier recovery after surgery.

Our team of experts will evaluate your recovery plan based on input from your surgeon and design a customized program to slowly assist in returning you to full function.  Treatment includes exercises to strengthen affected areas, the assessment of muscle imbalances and oversight of exercise performance to ensure exercises are done correctly.  The proper execution of exercises is critical in the prevention of re-injury or potential harm to other compensating muscle groups. We provide both physical and emotional support during your journey to recovery, with an eye toward managing degrees of pain and ultimately to improving flexibility.
