Post-Operative Physical Therapy

There is no such thing as a successful surgery without successful therapy afterward. Patients often develop dysfunctional movement patterns, persistent weakness or stiffness after surgery without PT. Post-Op rehab helps you recover without complications or mobility issues. We can create a simple, sustainable post-op exercise program for you.

Postoperative physical therapy is a crucial part of the healing process after surgery, especially when it is customized to address specific patient needs and goals. Post operative plans that include manual therapy, like the treatment we specialize in, can help patients recover from their surgery faster and with fewer complications. In our practice, we offer postoperative physical therapy services to help patients regain strength, mobility, and function after surgery.

Benefits of Postoperative Physical Therapy

Improved Recovery Time – Physical therapy can help patients recover from surgery faster by improving circulation, reducing inflammation, and decreasing pain. By providing patients with the appropriate exercises and manual treatment, we can help them recover from surgery more quickly and with better outcomes.

Reduced Risk of Complications – Patients who undergo surgery are at risk of developing complications such as blood clots, infections, and other issues. Physical therapy can help reduce the risk of complications by promoting circulation, reducing swelling, and improving mobility.

Customized Treatment Plans – In our physical therapy practice, we create customized treatment plans for each patient based on their individual needs and goals. This ensures that each patient receives the care and attention they need to make a full recovery.

Improved Function and Mobility – Postoperative physical therapy can help patients improve their function and mobility after surgery. This can include strengthening exercises, range of motion exercises, and balance training. By improving these areas, patients can regain their independence and resume their normal activities.

Pain Management (and elimination!)– Pain is a common issue after surgery, and physical therapy can be an effective way to manage pain without the use of medication. We offer a range of therapies and exercises to help patients manage their pain and improve their overall quality of life.


Postoperative Physical Therapy Services

In our physical therapy practice, we offer only the best post operative care. We know this because most of our clients choose to come to us after their progress hits a plateau with other clinics. Most insurance-based practices simply cannot offer the types of services necessary to achieve your maximum recovery.

These services include:

Manual therapy – Hands on joint, muscle and fascial work to eliminate unnecessary scar tissue, swelling and joint restrictions.

Scar Management – Our physical therapists can provide techniques and exercises to help reduce the appearance and discomfort of scars after surgery.

Range of Motion Exercises – These exercises help patients regain flexibility and mobility in the affected area after surgery.

Strengthening Exercises – Strengthening exercises help patients rebuild muscle strength and improve overall function after surgery.

Pain Management – We offer a range of therapies and techniques to help patients manage their pain after surgery, including heat therapy, ice therapy, and electrical stimulation.

Balance and Coordination Training – These exercises help patients improve their balance and coordination, which can be affected after surgery.
