Our dedicated team of chiropractors and healthcare professionals is here to provide comprehensive care and support to help you regain optimal function and mobility after orthopedic surgery.

Post-Surgery Orthopedic Care: Undergoing orthopedic surgery, whether it’s for the hips, shoulders, or knees, requires specialized care during the recovery process. Our experienced chiropractors are trained in post-surgical rehabilitation protocols and collaborate closely with your orthopedic surgeon to develop a tailored treatment plan specific to your needs.

We provide a multidisciplinary approach to post-surgery orthopedic care, combining chiropractic techniques, physical therapy modalities, and functional rehabilitation exercises. Our goal is to help you regain strength, flexibility, and stability while minimizing pain and maximizing your recovery potential.

Hips: Post-surgery rehabilitation for the hips focuses on restoring proper function, mobility, and stability in the hip joint. Our chiropractors will carefully evaluate your condition, taking into account surgical procedures such as hip replacement, hip arthroscopy, or hip fracture repair. We will develop a comprehensive treatment plan that may include gentle chiropractic adjustments to address any misalignments, as well as targeted exercises to improve range of motion, strengthen the surrounding muscles, and enhance hip joint stability.

Shoulders: Following shoulder surgery, whether it’s for rotator cuff repair, shoulder arthroscopy, or shoulder stabilization, our team at Paez Chiropractic P.C. is dedicated to helping you regain optimal shoulder function and range of motion. We will assess your specific surgical procedure and customize a rehabilitation program that may involve chiropractic adjustments to promote proper alignment and mobility, along with therapeutic exercises to improve shoulder strength, flexibility, and stability. Our focus is on facilitating the healing process, reducing pain and inflammation, and restoring your shoulder’s functional abilities.

Knees: Post-surgery rehabilitation for the knees is crucial for restoring mobility, strength, and stability in the knee joint. Whether you’ve undergone knee replacement surgery, ACL reconstruction, or meniscus repair, our chiropractors will develop a comprehensive rehabilitation plan tailored to your specific needs. This may include gentle chiropractic adjustments to address any misalignments and promote proper joint mechanics, as well as exercises targeting quadriceps and hamstring strength, flexibility, and balance. Our approach aims to optimize your knee’s recovery, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve your overall functional capacity.

Functional Rehab Tips:

Hips:

  • Perform gentle hip flexor stretches to improve flexibility and reduce tightness.
  • Strengthen the gluteal muscles with exercises like hip bridges and clamshells.
  • Practice weight-bearing exercises, such as squats and lunges, to improve hip joint stability.
  • Gradually increase your walking distance and intensity to rebuild endurance and functional capacity.

Shoulders:

  • Begin with gentle shoulder range-of-motion exercises, such as pendulum swings and wall crawls.
  • Strengthen the rotator cuff muscles with resistance band exercises, including external rotations and internal rotations.
  • Gradually progress to weight-bearing exercises like push-ups and shoulder presses to rebuild shoulder strength and stability.
  • Focus on maintaining good posture and avoiding activities that cause excessive strain on the shoulder joint.

Knees:

  • Start with gentle knee range-of-motion exercises, such as heel slides and knee extensions.
  • Strengthen the quadriceps and hamstrings with exercises like leg presses and hamstring curls.
  • Incorporate balance exercises, such as single-leg stands and heel-to-toe walks, to improve stability.
  • Gradually introduce low-impact activities like cycling or swimming to rebuild endurance and improve knee function.

Remember, these tips are general recommendations, and it’s essential to consult with our chiropractors or healthcare professionals to receive personalized guidance based on your specific condition and surgical procedure.
