Comeback Patient of the Month: Stephen Farrar

Stephen began his physical therapy journey in July following his first total knee replacement performed by Dr. Joseph. He presented shortly after surgery to outpatient PT with significant pain, edema, joint hypomobility and increased dependence on a walker while ambulating. As a passionate hiker, Stephen stated his goal at evaluation of being able to hike in Colorado without pain or instability in October. Initially, progress was slow secondary to pain and edema, but Stephen's dedication inside and outside the clinic stimulated change. He discovered a book called Knee Surgery: The Essential Guide to Total Knee Recovery by Daniel Fulham O'Neill, which he recommends every patient should be read prior to undergoing this surgery to stimulate the correct mindset for this difficult and crucial rehabilitation process.

 

Treatment consisted initially with predominantly manual techniques like soft tissue mobilization (including Graston and cupping), joint mobilizations, passive and active assisted range of motion exercises, and stretching. As his knee range of motion improved, treatment progressed towards functional strengthening and balance training (from stable to unstable surfaces) to improve his ability to navigate variable surfaces while hiking. In August, Stephen graduated from PT and was successfully able to climb 2,000 vertical feet up to the 11,000' Reflection lake in Colorado! We'd call this a success story!

Bike Fit Services. Now Offered

Do you ache after your ride? Do your knees hurt? Well, they don’t have to and you don’t have to. Being properly fitted to your bicycle is as critical as buying the bike that you want.  Without a good bike fit, you could be miserable.  A complete bike fit session includes an adjustment of the bike to fit your body and exercises to adapt you to the demands of cycling.  It’s best performed by a physical therapist who is knowledgeable in both the body and bicycling issues such as equipment and geometry.
