Physical therapists are being honored this October during National Physical Therapy Month. The purpose of this event is to recognize the important role these professionals play in helping patients recover from joint surgery.

“Physical therapy perform a critical role in helping our patients regain their physical health and mobility,” said Dr. Joseph Isaacson, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence, a division of La Peer Health Systems. “The right program is essential to restoring range of motion and strength after joint surgery.”

Dr. Isaacson specializes in treating patients with congenital abnormalities and small stature. He also specializes in joint reconstructive surgery in young adults.

“Many of the cases we work are the results of sports injuries,” added Dr. Jason Snibbe, the Medical Director of La Peer’s Joint Surgery Center of Excellence. “For athletes, physical therapy is an absolutely crucial part of rebuilding physical fitness and returning to the previous level of performance.”

Dr. Snibbe also treats patients for hip and knee conditions at La Peer's Knee Surgery Center of Excellence. Earlier in his career, he was an assistant physician for many Los Angeles area sports teams including the Lakers, Dodgers, Angels, Kings, Mighty Ducks, LA Avengers, and Galaxy.

Throughout the year, La Peer Health Systems participates in a number of other awareness programs including Prostate Cancer Awareness in September and National Colorectal Cancer Awareness in March.
