POST SURGICAL REHAB

Physical therapy is key to the recovery and healing process after surgery.  We work with you before and after surgery to make your return to activity as fast as possible. 

We offer pre and post operative care for orthopedic surgeries involving the hip, knee, shoulder, wrist, hand, neck, foot and ankle.

Pre-Operative Rehabilitation

The goals of a pre-habilitation program are:

  • Reduce pain and inflammation

  • Restore range of motion

  • Improving muscular control of the injured joint

  • Normalizing movement patterns prior to your surgery

  • Improved overall well-being and fitness

  • Gain a good understanding of the exercises that you will perform immediately after surgery

 

Post-Operative Rehabilitation

The body will not regain normal motion without specific retraining. Physical therapists are specifically trained to restore range of motion and strength without compensation and to prevent re-injury during the recovery process. The therapist can also provide the patient with specific guidelines to allow optimal healing. Post-operative treatments may specifically include:

  • Strategies for pain reduction including modalities such as ice, heat, and electrical stimulation

  • Flexibility exercises to improve range of motion

  • Exercises to strengthen muscles

  • Posture, balance, and coordination training

  • Gait analysis and training

  • Manual therapy techniques

  • Self-care training

  • Home exercise instruction
