What is a CPM therapy?
Following a knee surgery, it’s important to maintain mobility in your joints. A lack of motion in the joints after a knee surgery can result in stiffness as well as the formation of scar tissue that limits the range of motion. CPM therapy is a postoperative procedure that can help in the recovery process after knee surgery. This beneficial treatment passively moves the joints of the operated knee without the patient having to actively move the muscles themselves. The CPM machine progressively rotates the operated knee through an arc of motion. To learn more about this innovative treatment, schedule a consultation and meet with our orthopedic experts today.
