Comprehensive Physical Therapy

Using the newest techniques and equipment, our dedicated therapists will work with you and your surgeon to develop a rehabilitation plan to meet your individual needs.
Hip and Knee Joint Replacement
Hip and knee replacement can help many people with debilitating joint pain return to active lives. Joints are formed at the ends of two or more bones connected by tissue called cartilage. Healthy cartilage provides a cushion for the bones, but when the cartilage is damaged or wears away, the bones can rub against each other, causing great pain. Joint replacement can reduce pain, restore movement to the joint, and improve the overall quality of a patient’s life.
When only a portion of the joint is damaged, a surgeon may be able to perform partial joint replacement. In other cases, a total joint replacement is required and involves inserting artificial joints, called implants. Orthopedic surgeons on the medical staff at Salt Lake Regional Medical Center offer innovative procedures designed to meet the individual needs of patients.
