Post Operative Rehabilitation
Physical therapy is a versatile profession that treats a wide array of ailments, including musculoskeletal problems, sports injuries, vestibular problems, postpartum complications, neurological rehabilitation, pre and post-operative rehabilitations, and more. Our licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy performs quality evaluations obtaining baseline measurements before establishing an individualized treatment plan specific to each patient.
Pre-operative rehabilitation has been proven to lead to better outcomes following surgery. With pre-operative rehab, the focus is on reducing any pain and inflammation at and around the surgical site, increasing range of motion, normalizing movement patterns, enhancing muscular control, and mentally preparing the patient for what to expect with the surgery.
Post-operative rehabilitation is usually a requirement following orthopedic surgeries, including hip, knee, shoulder, spine, neck, foot, ankle, hand, and wrist. Depending of the surgery, outpatient rehab can begin as soon as a few days following surgery, and some may need to be immobilized for a few weeks. Physical therapists are trained in identifying biomechanical deficits and deviations and are essential in returning the patient to their prior level of function, with regaining mobility and strength safely and appropriately.
