Pre and Post Surgical Rehab

The thought of surgery can be scary and disturbing for many people. In many cases physical therapy has been shown to be as effective as surgery in treating a wide range of conditions from degenerative disc disease to rotator cuff and meniscal tears. If you haven’t seen a physical therapist for your injury, you owe it to yourself to be evaluated and treated before moving forward with surgery. Many times if surgery can not be avoided, the strengthening and flexibility that occurs prior to the surgery helps your post operative recovery go much smoother. 

If surgery is the best option, physical therapy will be a huge part of your successful recovery. Working with a physical therapist before and after surgery will promote healing and lead to a more complete recovery while reducing your risk of re-injury.

Regardless of which course of action is required, we will be with you to guide you through your recovery every step of the way so you can keep moving.
