Post-Op Rehab plans always follow the rehabilitation specifications as outlined by your surgeon. They are designed to relieve pain and inflammation and promote early healing following surgery.

The goal of post operative rehabilitation is to help patients optimize their recovery and regain as much of their physical abilities as possible.

We will work with you on physical activities and flexibility exercises that will help you regain your range of motion and strength.

What can I expect my post-op rehab plan?

  • How to use any equipment you may have or need.
  • Controlling swelling and pain.
  • Improving range of motion.
  • Reducing muscle inhibition and facilitation of muscle activation.
  • Building strength and return to activity and sport.
