What Is Post-Surgical Physical Therapy?
After surgery, bones, muscles and soft tissues undergo a period of healing. This can limit range of motion, flexibility and function of the joint, affecting the success of your surgery. Post-Surgical Physical Therapy is critical to restore full mobility and strengthen your joints & muscles.
Why do I need Post-Surgical Physical Therapy?
Our Physical Therapists are movement experts, who can help you achieve below goals after any surgery:
Reduce your pain and swelling • Restore normal joint movement
Strengthen your muscles • Improve blood circulation
Perform daily activities such as walking, sitting, standing, etc.
Alleviate potential blood clotting • Strengthen your Core
What can I expect with Post-Surgical Physical Therapy?
Post-Surgical Physical Therapy is often divided into phases. After a thorough assessment, our Physical Therapist will coordinate with your surgeon to fully understand the surgical procedure & any protocols that need to be followed.
The first phase comes immediately after surgery when you can expect to have pain, swelling and inflammation. Then comes a series of progressively challenging exercises to restore the range of motion, stability, and strength. The final phase is to return you to the pre-injury activity level.
What Treatment Techniques are used?
Our Physical Therapists will design a personalized treatment plan for you. Post-operative Therapy treatments may include:
Soft Tissue Release for pain, spasms and swelling
Game Ready® active compression and cold therapy
Manual therapy techniques
Therapeutic exercises to improve range of motion & strengthen muscles
