The road to recovery after surgery can be made considerably shorter and smoother with the help of the highly skilled, attentive and caring physical therapy staff at The Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Center. Physical therapy to help patients get back to the activities they require and enjoy is being increasingly recommended by doctors and surgeons. That’s because the importance of getting moving immediately after the procedure has been recognized as the best path to a more successful recovery. We work with our patents’ medical team to provide a crucial component of surgical aftercare.
For a patient who has had back surgery, our physical therapist will carefully supervise gentle stretches and gradually introduce exercises to build strength and stability. For those who have had a shoulder, hip or knee replaced, our individualized treatment plan will focus on regaining range of motion in the joint and overall mobility. Recovery from sports injuries such as a torn meniscus or anterior cruciate ligament requires the progressive strengthening of the surrounding muscles including the hamstrings and quadriceps. We also work with patients who have experienced a stroke or heart surgery to help regain movement and muscle function.
Our state-of-the-art facility has the equipment and superbly trained staff that has made our practice one of the most highly recommended by doctors and surgeons throughout the region. Our individualized approach considers each patient’s overall health and fitness level when creating a treatment plan; we never rely on a one-size-fits-all approach. Each patient is carefully guided through our stretches and exercises under close one-on-one supervision, and we adjust our sessions based on progress, working with the patient’s medical team throughout the process.
Making physical therapy part of the recovery process is becoming increasingly recommended, and there is no one more experienced and better equipped to provide this vital care than the staff at The Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Center. Please contact us today to schedule an evaluation.
