Rehabilitation protocols

Our rehab protocols have been carefully developed by our physical therapy team along with the physicians. 

We help our patients fully realize their functional and athletic goals, working on strength, agility, balance, proprioception, cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, flexibility, power, coordination, and accuracy.

Find a Stone trusted physical therapist

Local patients are treated in our onsite clinic with our world-class physical therapists. Many out-of-town patients choose to stay locally while they are rehabilitating. We recommend that out-of-town patients begin their physical therapy at The Stone Clinic and continue the same protocol once they are back home. Patients may choose to work with a Stone trusted PT (familiar with our biologic and robotic-assisted joint procedures) or request that their own PT take an online course in The Stone Clinic Method.

Avoid joint replacement
You are told you have knee arthritis. The advice the doctor gives you is to go home, rest your knee, take anti-inflammatory drugs, lose some weight, wait until you are older and then get an artificial knee replacement. This advice is awful. Here's why.
Many elements contribute to top athletic performance. Some are obvious—like diet and training—but another factor is more subtle.
To help you find a good physical therapist, here’s a guide to what we look for when hiring PTs, outlining the skills we expect them to bring to the patient and to the doctor.
