Do I need a knee replacement?

This is the time of year we see a lot of knee replacement surgeries!  I found this pic and it made me laugh!

So, did you know physical therapy can help get you stronger before your surgery?  We can strengthen and stabilize your entire body to get your ready for the walker and all that weight that will be going through your ‘good’ leg during your recovery period!  Sometimes, we are able to decrease your pain before surgery as well!  Christen has had great success with dry needling arthritic knees….so much so that some patients have no pain and avoid knee surgery after she does her protocol!  It’s amazing!

If you do end up needing a total knee replacement though, I’ve asked Dr. Joey Lamartina, an orthopedic from St. Tammany Parish Hospital to talk on the topic of total knees and robotics.  He also talks a little about what his specialties are as well.  Take a listen!

As always, we would love to help you, your family, your friends, or anyone you know get rid of their pain!  Please click here or call 985-871-7878 to get an appointment today!
