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.

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.
