Total Joint Replacement Program

Both our inpatient and outpatient Elliot Rehabilitation teams are committed to maximize your optimal ROM, strength and overall function before and after your joint replacement.  Our highly skilled therapists are experienced in treating a variety of joint replacements. 

Joint Replacements may include:

  • Knee arthroplasty
    • Total/Partial/revision
  • Hip arthroplasty
    • Anterior approach/Posterior approach/Lateral approach/Revision
  • Shoulder arthroplasty
    • Total shoulder/Reverse total shoulder


Your therapist will create a customized treatment plan based on your personal, professional and recreational needs. You may be planning to return to work or return to playing golf. Treatment often includes:

  • Manual techniques to restore joint motion and minimize swelling
  • ROM and stretching to restore proper joint motion
  • Specifically guided and progressive therapeutic exercises to improve muscular strength
  • Postural retraining
  • Balance retraining to maximize safety and improve walking efficiency. 
  • Patient education about surgical protocol, post-surgical precautions and joint preservation techniques
  • Home exercise program to continue making gains after discharge

Advanced Care/Expertise

We utilize an evidence-based research approach and outcome studies to improve our outcomes. Our staff continuously furthers their knowledge through collaboration, annual continued education and professional courses. We have many therapists with the distinction of being certified by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, as Orthopedic Clinical Specialists. This title designates the top experts in Orthopedic Physical Therapy.

Joint replacement candidates participate in pre-op classes to prepare for surgery.

We have a strong collaboration with orthopedics performing same day total joint replacement procedures to ensure a safe and successful discharge to home.
