Pre/Post Surgical Rehabilitation
What is Pre/Post Surgical Rehabilitation?
Get back to your favorite sport or activity with Agile PT!
We know that recovering from a major surgery can be physical and emotionally challenging. Pre- and Post-operative care for your orthopedic injury can make a significant difference in how fast and how well you recover.
Pre-operative physical therapy is performing strengthening prior to your surgery and has been shown in the research to improve your strength and recovery after your surgery.
Post-operative care is performing physical therapy after your surgery which has been well-known in research to promote faster and better recoveries.
Physical therapists have substantial medical knowledge that includes how surgery affects a person’s body. They understand the limitations of surgery so you can be pushed in the appropriate way to quicken your recovery and return to sport. While you might be pushed, our PTs will not allow you to do any exercise that may slow your recovery or worsen your condition.
