If you are scheduled for an upcoming surgery, your doctor might have mentioned the idea of pre-surgical rehabilitation. Pre-surgical rehab is used to condition your body for your upcoming surgery and help create a positive result after the surgery is over. It can even help decrease the amount of post-operative care that you need after your surgery. At Flowers Physical Therapy, our rehabilitation programs can help condition your body to prepare it for surgery. Contact us today for an evaluation.
What is Pre-Surgical Rehab?
Pre-surgical rehab is the process of getting your entire body, especially the affected area, ready for surgery and the post-operative care that is necessary for your recovery. By participating in pre-surgical rehab, you will be able to outline a plan that will help you recover quickly and effectively. The exercise techniques and stretches that patients perform in pre-surgical rehab depend on the severity of the patient’s injury. This rehab process focuses on maintaining muscle and joint strength as well as improving range of motion. Pre-surgical rehab can be extremely beneficial to help your day-to-day life before as well as after your surgery. In addition to focusing on muscle and joint strength, another goal of pre-surgical rehab is to not worsen the injury. This is why pre-surgical rehab is often slow and steady.
