At Pacific Physical Therapy, we understand orthopedic surgeries and will help you recover by restoring strength and motion to your muscles and joints. Having an understanding of each surgical procedure, and having an appropriate function based post-surgical protocol is something that we focus on  at Pacific Physical Therapy. This allows us to guide the patient throughout their care in the appropriate at home exercises, as well as in clinic treatment to maximize your recovery and restore function.

We use a comprehensive hands-on approach utilizing the latest manual therapy techniques for improving joint mobility and decreasing pain as well as proven evidence-based exercise treatments to treat pain and lost function caused by joint replacement surgery, knee ACL reconstruction, shoulder rotator cuff repair, spinal surgery or any other surgical condition. We will work closely with your surgeon throughout your therapy to make sure you are meeting specific rehabilitation protocols. We also meet weekly in person with the surgeons at West Sound Orthopedics to discuss each individual patient, their progress, and what what needs to happen with their care. This constant communication with your surgeon about your progress helps keep everybody up to date on the latest in our patients care.

By combining experienced care with our one-on-one, hands-on patient focus, we can help achieve better results for you more quickly.  Our physical therapist will thoroughly evaluate your condition and health history.  This evaluation gives us a thorough understanding of your pain and any functional difficulties you are experiencing.

We check your range of motion, flexibility, strength, posture, gait and other points that may affect your pain experience and then create a customized treatment program based on our findings.  Some of the therapies and modalities we use at Pacific Physical Therapy are:

  • Soft tissue mobilization
  • Joint mobilization and manipulation
  • Muscle energy
  • Neuromuscular re-education
  • Balance & gait training
  • Stretching
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Therapeutic exercise & functional strength training
  • Ultrasound

Pacific Physical Therapy has specific evidence-based protocols for your post surgical condition that will help you get back to your active lifestyle.
