Comprehensive Knee Rehabilitation Solutions


Whether you’ve recently undergone a knee replacement or are considering it in the future, understanding the importance of rehabilitation is key to maximizing the benefits of surgery. Total Knee Replacement Rehabilitation is a comprehensive process designed to restore mobility, alleviate pain, and enhance the overall quality of life.

Divergent Health offers advanced rehabilitation techniques including Continuous Passive Motion and Low-Level Laser Therapy at our Calgary Clinic. Our expert team of medical doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, kinesiologists, and exercise physiologists work collaboratively to assist your recovery journey after knee surgery.

Post-surgical Knee Rehabilitation with Continuous Passive Motion

Continuous Passive Motion (CPMOTION) is a therapeutic technique that uses a device to provide regulated movement for the knee joint. The BTL-CPMOTION solution—now available at our Calgary Clinic—is particularly beneficial for those recovering from knee surgery, ligament injuries, or joint stiffness.

How Continuous Passive Motion Works

BTL-CPMOTION automates controlled joint movement passively without requiring active patient participation. The machine is adjustable for optimal speed, range, and duration tailored to your individual needs. By gently bending and straightening the joint, CPMOTION prevents stiffness while promoting fluid circulation, leading to reduced swelling and removal of inflammatory byproducts. CPMOTION is comfortable for patients and supervised by experienced Divergent clinicians  ensuring a safe and effective rehabilitation process.

Benefits of Continuous Passive Motion after Knee Replacement

Promotes Healing of Cartilage and Damaged Ligaments

CPMOTION promotes faster healing by reducing swelling, preventing joint stiffness, and enhancing circulation.

Improvement in Joint Metabolism

CPMotion involves the repetitive and controlled movement of the joint, which helps stimulate the production and circulation of synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is crucial for joint nourishment and lubrication.

Improves Range of Motion

This therapy helps restore and improve the knee’s range of motion by providing controlled and continuous movement.

Prevention of Joint Stiffness

Controlled motion minimizes the risk of stiffness, preserving the joint’s ability to move freely and promoting healthier metabolic function.

Minimizes Scar Tissue

The gentle action of CPMOTION aids in minimizing scar tissue formation.

Knee Replacement Rehabilitation with Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)—also known as Cold Laser Therapy or photobiomodulation—is a drug-free and non-invasive technique that uses low-level light to stimulate cellular activity. This innovative treatment promotes healing and reduces inflammation for patients seeking to accelerate recovery from knee replacement in Calgary.

How Low-Level Laser Therapy Works

Low-Level Laser Therapy utilizes low-intensity light to stimulate cellular activity and trigger several physiological responses. Light penetrates deep into tissues and interacts with cellular components to activate a cascade of biological functions, particularly in the mitochondria, where it enhances the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)—the energy source of cells. The light energy can influence the release of neurotransmitters to induce muscle relaxation and aid in pain relief. These effects collectively contribute to accelerated tissue healing and enhanced recovery after knee replacement surgery.

Benefits of Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) Rehabilitation

Accelerated Healing

Light energy stimulates ATP production in the mitochondria—the cell’s power factory—leading to faster tissue repair.

Reduced Inflammation

A series of biological processes can generate anti-inflammatory effects that help control swelling, which contributes to improved recovery.

Improved Circulation

Light energy activates physiological mechanisms—including enhanced blood flow—that facilitate the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to knee tissues.

Joint Mobility and Flexibility

Enhanced cellular functions may involve a boost in joint mobility and flexibility by supporting collagen production and reducing collagen breakdown—aiding in the restoration of the knee joint’s normal range of motion.

Pain Reduction

Low-Level Lasers can deliver energy to stimulate increased cellular operations. This activity can promote the regeneration of healthy nerves, providing pain relief for individuals recovering from knee replacement surgery.
