Knee Rehab 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 is now available at our Calgary Clinic for those recovering from knee surgery, ligament injuries, or joint stiffness. This motorized device gently bends and straightens your knee, mimicking natural movement without any muscle strain from you. 

By promoting circulation and stretching, CPM can help reduce stiffness, decrease pain, and improve your knee’s overall range of motion. CPM can also be a pain-free way to move your knee and reduce stress on healing tissues. Continuous Passive Motion can be paired with other physical therapy exercises to get your knee strong and stable. Talk to Divergent Health in Calgary to see if CPM is the right fit for your specific recovery journey.

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 needs. By gently bending and straightening the joint, CPMOTION prevents stiffness while promoting fluid circulation, reducing swelling and removing 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

Repetitive and controlled joint movement stimulates the production and circulation of synovial fluid, which 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, minimizing the risk of stiffness, and preserving the joint's ability to move freely


Minimizes Scar Tissue

Scar tissue can form after surgery and limit joint mobility. CPM's gentle movement can help prevent excessive scar tissue formation by keeping the joint moving.

Knee Replacement Rehabilitation with Low-Level Laser Therapy

Low-level laser Therapy (LLLT)—also known as Cold Laser Therapy or photobiomodulation—is a drug-free and noninvasive 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 Robotic Laser Therapy Works

Low-Level Laser Therapy utilizes low-intensity light to stimulate cellular activity and trigger several physiological responses. An advanced robot deliverslaser light deep into tissues to interact with cellular components. This activates 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.

Low-Level Laser Therapy can often be combined with other rehab techniques like physical therapy for optimal results. Talk to us at Divergent Health to see if LLLT can be a valuable addition to your recovery journey.

Benefits of Laser Therapy for Knee Rehab


Accelerated Healing

Light energy activates physiological processes and stimulates the production of ATP, the cell's power factory. It enhances blood flow, leading to faster tissue repair. 


Reduced Inflammation

This treatment can trigger a series of biological processes that generate anti-inflammatory effects. These effects help control swelling, which contributes to improved recovery.


Joint Mobility and Flexibility

Light energy stimulates collagen production and reduces collagen breakdown, aiding in the restoration of the knee joint’s normal range of motion..


Pain Reduction

Laser energy stimulates increased cellular operations that promote the regeneration of healthy nerves, providing pain relief for individuals recovering from knee replacement surgery.
