The application of continuous passive motion to joints immediately after podiatric surgery stimulates the regeneration of articular tissue, eliminates adhesions, prevents joint stiffness, reduces pain, and is well tolerated by patients. The author reviews the development of continuous passive motion in animal and clinical studies and how it may be used after podiatric surgery.
