• Our goal during your post-surgical rehabilitation is to return you to your prior level of physical function. This includes successful return to your work, recreational activities, and competitive sports.

    Our therapists provide guided treatment sessions to closely monitor your progress and will advance you according to your response as well as your physician’s recommendations. We maintain regular communication with your surgeon to ensure your progress matches the rate of tissue healing so that your recovery is optimal.

    Your participation in your rehabilitation is critical. On your first post-surgical visit, your therapist will work with you to establish your goals for therapy. Your therapist will review any post-surgical precautions you may have. You will also be prescribed a home exercise program so that you can continue your progress outside of therapy.  

    Commonly treated orthopedic procedures include, but are not limited to:

    • Rotator cuff repairs and other shoulder reconstructions
    • Total joint replacements (shoulder, hip, knee, ankle)
    •  Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction
    • Arthroscopic knee surgeries (such as meniscectomies, meniscal repairs)
    • Arthroscopic hip surgeries (such as labral repairs)
    •  Achilles tendon repairs
    • Nerve releases (such as cubital tunnel, radial tunnel, carpal tunnel, tarsal tunnel)
    • Neck and back surgery (such as fusions, laminectomy, decompression, microdiscectomy)
    • Surgical fixation of fractures of the arms and legs

    We strongly recommend you schedule your first post-operative visit before you have surgery in order to ensure you are seen in a timely manner. You should ask your physician how soon after surgery you should begin physical therapy. Please consult us regarding pre-operative conditioning for better outcomes.
