Saint Alphonsus Rehabilitation Services (STARS) offers outpatient rehabilitation for joint replacement surgery. Our therapists are experienced and highly skilled in treating orthopedic conditions and have a wide range of treatment techniques. They develop individualized patient treatment programs based on the patient’s needs and goals. Services are designed to build strength and endurance, restore functional mobility, improve performance of daily activities, and manage pain.

Typical Total Joint Replacement Surgeries:

  • Hip Replacement
  • Knee Replacement
  • Shoulder Replacement
  • Wrist Replacement

Total joint replacement surgeries are needed by a damaged or arthritic joint that needs to be removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called prosthesis. Prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint. Surrounding muscle and ligaments are stretched and worn during this process. This makes joint care through rehabilitation very beneficial.

Patients who begin their outpatient rehabilitation within one week after surgery are more likely to regain a full range of motion in their joint. Joint care is important to condition surrounding muscle and tendons and to train patients in how to best deal with their prosthetic.
