Rehabilitation − What to Expect
Caring for Your Body After Surgery

Surgery is a traumatic experience, both mentally and physically. We understand that our patients want their bodies back to 100% as soon as possible. Physical therapy is important to regaining full function after surgery. At SportsMed Physical Therapy, we specialize in post-
surgery care of the spine (back), hip, knee, shoulder and elbow.

Our physical therapists spend extra time teaching the proper strengthening techniques to help aid recovery and assess for muscle imbalances and compensation patterns, educating patients about proper posture and body mechanics for daily activities. Our therapists also develop personalized home exercise programs for each patient to help expedite the recovery process.

Restoring Function to Your Healing Body

We work under the specific prescription of our patients’ surgeons to get them on an intensive road to full recovery. This program starts very slowly; we know that those coming in for post-surgery care may still be in pain. Each day after surgery is a building block back to full, functional recovery. Our post-surgery care program is an active process led by the patient. We push our patients harder as therapy progresses. Some days are frustrating as the body is still healing; we are there to give our patients the emotional strength they need to get their physical selves back.

We help our patients recover faster and become stronger after surgery. We spend one-on-one time with our patients ensuring that they are not only doing their exercises but most importantly doing them correctly, and provide them with the individualized attention and support they need along the way
