CPM General Information: What does it do?

Your doctor has prescribed a home Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) device to aid in your joint rehabilitation. A CPM moves your joint passively and can provide many benefits following your surgery including:

  • Minimizes formation of scar tissue
  • Decreases pain and swelling
  • Decreases overall joint stiffness
  • Increases nutrition to the joint
  • Helps to maintain the joint range of motion that you, your therapists and your doctor are trying to achieve

Guidelines for CPM Use:

Your doctor has recommended the following usage:

_____________ times (sessions) per day (as can be tolerated)
_____________ hour(s) per session (as can be tolerated)

Slowly increase range of motion as can be tolerated.

Shoulder CPM Patients

– Never exceed 120 degrees range of motion without physician approval.

– Never exceed 140 degrees maximum.


  • Do not begin using CPM until 24 hours after your surgery.
  • Discontinue using the CPM if you experience significant increased pain, redness, or swelling and contact your doctor.
