The Serious Consequences Of Inactivity After Surgery

At BURD Physical Therapy, we understand that movement is essential to a successful recovery after surgery.

Physical therapy can be an integral part of the healing process by promoting the return to full strength and mobility.

Inactivity post-surgery can put patients at risk for long-term complications such as muscle atrophy, joint contractures, and tissue breakdown.

It is important to start physical therapy as soon as possible after surgery in order to progress safely towards full function and reduce risk of injury or re-injury.

Our experienced team of therapists customizes individualized treatment plans for each patient.

With a focus on maximizing movement quality and restoring pre-surgery levels of strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance.

We strive to help our patients reach their maximum potential for a safe return to full activity.
