In Home Therapy after Joint Replacement in Jackson NJ

At Piton PT we know that surgery is sometimes necessary to achieve the quality of life that you want. Joint replacement is typically necessary due to severe trauma or arthritis.

If you have been managing and trying to put off your joint replacement for an extended period of time, you have likely developed compensations.

This can cause tightness in your muscles, decreased strength and range of motion. Starting physical therapy before your joint replacement can improve your long term pain and reduce your compensations for better long term effects.

During your surgery, your joint will be replaced with an artificial one. However, your muscles, ligaments, and tendons are not replaced and become effected from the trauma of your surgery and post operative swelling.

At Piton PT, Dr. Julie Gray is board certified in orthopedics and has extensive experience in hip, knee, shoulder, and ankle replacement surgeries and rehabilitative protocols. Because of our ability to be mobile we can bring our expertise to you and address the specific issues you are having in your home to get you moving better, faster!
