If you suffer from osteoarthritis pain and have been unable to find other effective treatments, your doctor might suggest joint fusion surgery. If you are considering undergoing joint fusion surgery, or have already done so, Madison Physical Therapy can help you with your post-surgical recovery.
Joint fusion surgery can be performed on many different joints, including the spine, ankle, wrists, hands, and feet. The orthopedic surgeon will scrape away the excess cartilage in the joint, to allow the bones to fuse, and then use metal plates or screws to hold the joints together. These will remain in your body even after your joint heals. Once your surgery is complete, post-surgical rehab is often your next step.
At Madison Physical Therapy, our physical therapists in Brooklyn will be there to help you to properly heal and restore mobility. Once you are cleared for outpatient physical therapy, you will want to schedule a physical therapy evaluation.
