Continuous Passive Motion (CPM)
Knee CPM is used postoperatively for Total Knee Replacement and Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) repairs. After extensive joint surgery, if a patient fails to move the joint, tissue around the joint will become stiff and scar tissue will form, resulting in a joint with limited range of motion. CPM will increase ROM, decrease pain, and reduce swelling. CPM will assist the patient get back into everyday life faster in conjunction with physical therapy.
