Surgeons routinely refer post-surgical patients to our physical therapists to help them recover strength, function and mobility.
Our therapists provide one-on-one, evidence-based physical therapy treatment sessions to help facilitate your recovery and return to activities of daily living (ADLs), work, recreational activities and even competitive sports.
Whether you just had surgery, are wondering if you may need it, or are trying to avoid it altogether, physical therapy can help. Physical therapy is a conservative (non-invasive) treatment method that can prevent or delay surgery.
Pre-surgical treatment, also known as prehabilitation, focuses on maximizing your full potential before surgery so that the rehabilitation after surgery is faster and has better outcomes. Muscle begin to lose mass after only a few days of disuse. Gaining the most strength and range of motion possible before surgery will help to ameliorate the muscle mass lost while you are recovering from your surgery.
Post-surgical treatment requires medical specialists who are trained in rehabilitation protocols. Depending on your surgery, there will be structures that should not be stretched or strengthened for a certain period of time. Our physical therapists are up-to-date with post-surgical protocols to make sure you are rehabbing quickly, but also safely.
Whether you are about to have surgery or have had it already, we can help decrease pain and restore function with treatments designed to help you reach your goals.
