What is The Purpose of Physical Therapy Before Surgery?
Surgery will typically only be performed when there are no other options left to create the desired result for the patient. Surgery is often a last resort because of the considerable trauma the body undergoes due to an invasive procedure. This trauma, however, can be significantly lessened by going through pre-surgical Physical Therapy.
Before your surgery, our Therapists will reinforce important movement patterns that will ensure that you go into surgery with a strong and mobile joint. The exercises performed will help prepare the muscular tissue around the injury for the inevitable loss of strength and function that will follow your surgery. The stronger you are before surgery, the less dramatic your recovery process will be after the operation.
Why is Physical Therapy Important After Surgery?
Many of the adverse effects after having a surgery can be alleviated through targeting training and exercises. Physical Therapy after a joint replacement will help to minimize inflammation, pain, and swelling by improving circulation to the injured area. Getting the joint moving as early as possible will help limit the development of scar tissue to help wounds heal more quickly and maintain adequate range of motion. Our Physical Therapists are dedicated to helping you achieve your recovery goals and return to the activities you love and enjoy.
