What is CPM?
CPM is Continuous Passive Motion, a post-operative therapy designed to aid in recovery after joint surgery, both in the hospital and at home. If a patient fails to move the joint sufficiently and properly after surgery, it will become stiff and scar tissue will form. This may result in a joint with limited range of motion, from which it can take months of physical therapy to recover. A CPM device is used to move the joint through a prescribed range of motion for an average of 3-6 weeks without the patient’s muscles being used.
Benefits of CPM
- Reduced pain, stiffness and swelling with an increase in synovial fluid flow helping in the healing process
- Increased range of motion
- Decreased formation of random scar tissue or adhesions
