PhysioActive Knee Rehabilitation Programs:
Physioactive has a knee rehabilitation program for you. From our high-performance program for aspiring young athletes and our professional athletes to our return to sport and daily life for our active adults to our post-operative program be it post ACL repair or meniscectomy, or our total joint replacement program we have the perfect knee program for you. Many of our semi-pro and professional athletes move from our post-op program into our high-performance program here at Physioactive. Led by our knee program director, we will accurately assess your needs and tailor your knee rehab to your age, stage, and goals.
Our high-performance program is for new and old knee injuries. This program focuses on higher-level rehabilitation, using the latest science, exercises, manual therapy and technology to optimize movement and performance. In this program, general movement patterns and sport-specific movement patterns will be evaluated and specific exercises and therapy are designed to increase performance and prevent injury. At Physioactive, your therapist will look at the whole body, especially the foot, leg, pelvis and low back and integrating the full-body movement. Speed, hand-eye, and brain (nervous system) functions are integrated into your individualized program. Our therapists have backgrounds and experience in a variety of sports including hockey, soccer, baseball, tennis, runners/triathletes and more.
Return to Sport and Daily Life
Our return to sport and daily life program is similar to our high-performance program, with more focus on injury prevention. Many of our clients are trying to compete and are getting injured while training or performing beer league athletics. Our experience is that these athletes are doing their best to stay in shape by going to the gym and competing in athletics, but are suffering from aches and pains and are moving sub-optimally that is leading to their knee pain and injuries. This program will rehabilitate your knee, but also focus on core, flexibility and movement skills to keep your knees young and prevent injury while also increasing performance as a by-product.
Total Joint Replacement Rehabilitation Program
This total joint replacement rehabilitation program is a natural continuation of the hospital programs for your new knee (or hip). We also strongly encourage our clients to attend a few Pre-habilitation sessions. Our therapists use the latest technology to get your swelling down. We also only see 2 patients per hour so there will plenty of time for your therapist to use hands-on manual therapy to stretch and mobilize your muscles, fascial and joint capsule to assist in a range of motion, reduce pain and swelling. Your therapist will accurately progress your exercises so you will improve as quickly as possible. Our therapists will get you back to your life from 10 years ago, long before the knee pain began. Many of our clients postpone delay, or permanently cancel their surgeries when they attend our prehabilitation program because of full pain reduction and return to pain-free activities of daily living.
Our post-operative program is for all knee surgeries. Most commonly we see post ACL repairs and meniscectomies. All our post-operative clients start in this program during which we reduce pain and swelling, using our game ready compression and ice machine, modalities to speed healing at tissue repair and appropriate exercises that are accurately progressed based on your progress. Our semi-pro and younger aspiring athletes quickly move from this program to our high-performance program when they are ready.
