Physical Therapy


Pre-Operative Physical Therapy

Pre-Operative Physical Therapy, also known as "prehab," is a proactive approach we offer at Balance and Mobility Therapy to help patients prepare for upcoming surgeries. The goal of this service is to improve a patient's health and strength prior to surgery, potentially leading to better post-operative outcomes.

Pre-Operative Physical Therapy involves a series of exercises and treatments designed to enhance flexibility, strength, endurance, and overall physical condition. By entering surgery in the best possible physical shape, patients can often reduce their recovery time and improve the effectiveness of subsequent post-operative rehabilitation.

Specifically, prehab can help to:
1.) Reduce pain and inflammation before surgery.
2.) Improve muscular control and function, which can help to stabilize the surgical area and promote a more successful surgery.
3.) Familiarize patients with the exercises they will perform during post-operative physical therapy, making the transition smoother and less intimidating.

At Balance and Mobility Therapy, our experienced therapists work closely with patients and their surgeons to develop a customized pre-operative physical therapy program. By considering the patient's current health status, type of surgery, and personal goals, we can provide the most beneficial pre-operative care.

Incorporating prehab into your surgical plan is an investment in your recovery. With our help, you can head into surgery feeling stronger, more prepared, and more confident in your journey towards recovery.

Post-Operative Physical Therapy

Post-Operative Physical Therapy is an essential part of recovery following surgery. At Balance and Mobility Therapy, we offer specialized post-operative care to help our patients regain strength, function, and mobility, enabling them to return to their daily activities as quickly and safely as possible.

Post-Operative Physical Therapy involves a range of techniques and exercises, tailored to the individual's surgical procedure and personal health goals. These may include:
1.) Pain Management: Techniques such as manual therapy, ice, heat, and electrical stimulation to help reduce inflammation and alleviate post-surgical discomfort.
2.) Strengthening Exercises: Targeted exercises to rebuild muscle strength and joint function that may have been affected by surgery.
3.) Mobility Improvement: Activities and exercises aimed at enhancing range of motion, flexibility, and overall mobility.
4.) Education: Providing advice on safe movements and postures, activity modifications, and at-home exercises to ensure a successful ongoing recovery process.

Our experienced therapists work closely with each patient, creating an individualized treatment plan that takes into account the type of surgery, the surgeon's instructions, and the patient's own recovery goals.

At Balance and Mobility Therapy, we're committed to supporting our patients every step of the way through their post-operative recovery. Our aim is not just to help you recover, but to regain and even surpass your pre-surgery levels of function and performance.
