Passive Range of Motion (ROM) Exercise
In an effort to restore range of motion in the knee joint without the discomfort of being weight bearing we utilize a passive physical therapy designed specifically for the knee. Studies have shown that PASSIVE range of motion is the key to erasing muscle memory while reducing inflammation. This is one of the easiest and most painless ways to promote healthy motion without pain. The patient lies flat on the bench while one leg is harnessed in the machine. The machine does all the work as it effortlessly and painlessly moves the leg in multiple positions.
This ROM machine (below) moves a patient’s injured knee in precise motions that help it heal.
