Pre-surgery rehabilitation allows patients to prepare for and recuperate from surgery safely under the supervision of a physical therapist. Physical therapy prior to surgery helps reduce pain and inflammation. It improves joint mobility and range of motion to prepare clients for a more successful surgical outcome. Pre-surgical rehabilitation is an individualized exercise conditioning program that trains the muscles in advance for the exercises they will need to do post-surgery. Pre-surgical rehabilitation helps patients to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, increase stamina, enhance overall fitness, restore range of motion and regain strength and flexibility in the joints and muscles near the injured area. Pre-surgical physical therapy leads to faster recovery with better outcomes.
Post-surgical rehabilitation is crucial to regaining pain-free function and returning to daily activities safely and more quickly. Post-operative physical therapy safely eases patients back into daily activity and regular exercise. Our physical therapists perform a thorough evaluation post-surgery and develop a customized treatment plan to minimize adverse effects from surgery and restore normal movement, flexibility, and function. Post-surgery rehabilitation helps patients to manage post-operative pain, regain motion and strength, decrease pain, stiffness, and swelling and return to their daily activities more quickly. Post-surgical rehabilitation can take several months and it is essential to begin physical therapy shortly after surgery so that the joint can heal properly and minimize scar tissue development.
