Joint Replacement Rehab
If you want to get the most out of your new joint, you have to get the most out of your physical therapy.
As common as various joint replacement procedures have become in recent years, recovery is still difficult. It takes hard work, commitment and perseverance on your part, and it takes the guidance, motivation and compassion of your physical therapist to get you to the finish line.
3DPT will ensure your program is customized to your needs and your lifestyle.
Frustration, pain and stiffness will be gradually replaced by mobility, flexibility and excitement. You’ll learn how to reduce strain on your joints and keep the momentum going with simple exercises you can do at home.
Think about why you’re considering joint replacement in the first place. Maybe the pain is constant. Maybe it keeps you awake at night. Maybe it’s too painful to do the things you love. The more active you are, the more important physical therapy is.
Contact 3DPT at 609-714-3378 to find out how physical therapy after joint replacement can help you regain the active lifestyle you deserve.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
The therapists at 3DPT will use stainless steel instruments designed to help pinpoint thickening or scarring produced by the body in response to injury.. We will then use the instruments to separate and break down scar tissue, stretch connective tissue and muscle fibers and increase blood flow to and from the affected area, all of which are crucial to the healing process.
As a result, patients experience increased range of motion and a significant reduction in, or elimination of, pain. If pain and reduced range of motion have been a problem for you, IASTM may be part of the solution.

Pediatric Physical Therapy
A common misconception is that physical therapy is physical therapy. PT is so diverse! With this in mind, it is very important to seek out a pediatric physical therapist for your child. Even better, you can go on the American Physical Therapy Association website and find a board certified Pediatric Physical Therapist in your area (http://www.abpts.org/FindaSpecialist/).
The services a pediatric physical therapist can offer include:
- Assessment of developmental and gross motor skills – to help make sure your child is reaching milestones on time
- Upper/lower extremity and spine evaluation – to make sure things are moving the way they should be
- Assessment of balance, gait, and mobility – to make sure your child is walking, running, and hopping the way he or she should be
- Assessment for brace or orthotic needs – to help make sure your child has good alignment from head to toe
- Assistive device and equipment assessment – to help promote independent mobility, no matter your child's skill set
Pediatric PT's work with children with a range of diagnoses, including, but not limited to:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Connective tissue diseases (such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome)
- Coordination or balance disorders
- Developmental delay
- Gross motor delays
- Juvenille Rheumatoid Arthritis/Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
- Muscular dystrophy
- Neuromuscular disorders ( such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth)
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Trisomy 21
