BURD Physical Therapy offers specialized pre-operative and post-operative treatment programs to help patients prepare for and recover from surgery. Our experienced physical therapists work closely with patients and their healthcare providers to create personalized treatment plans that address their specific needs and goals.
Pre-operative treatment focuses on improving strength, flexibility, and mobility in the affected area, as well as reducing pain and inflammation. This can help patients prepare for surgery and improve their outcomes. Post-operative treatment focuses on helping patients regain function, mobility, and strength after surgery, as well as managing pain and promoting healing.
Research has shown that pre-operative physical therapy can significantly improve post-operative outcomes. A study published in The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery found that patients who participated in pre-operative physical therapy had shorter hospital stays and were less likely to be discharged to a rehabilitation facility after surgery. These patients also had better functional outcomes, including improved range of motion and strength, and fewer complications following surgery. This highlights the importance of pre-operative physical therapy in preparing patients for surgery and improving their recovery afterward.
Our pre-operative and post-operative treatment programs use a variety of techniques, including exercise therapy, manual therapy, and modalities such as heat and cold therapy. We also provide education on proper nutrition and lifestyle modifications to help patients achieve their best possible outcomes.
Our goal is to help patients return to their normal activities as quickly and safely as possible. Whether you are preparing for surgery or recovering from a procedure, our team of experts is here to support you every step of the way.
AT BURD PHYSICAL THERAPY
Improved post-operative outcomes
By engaging in pre-operative therapy, patients can help to prepare their bodies for the physical demands of surgery, potentially leading to improved post-operative outcomes such as reduced pain, faster recovery times, and better overall function.
Reduced risk of complications
Patients who engage in pre-operative therapy may be at a reduced risk of developing complications during and after surgery, such as blood clots or wound infections. This is because prehabilitation can help to improve overall physical function and reduce the risk of other health conditions that could impact surgical outcomes.
Improved recovery time
Post-operative therapy can help patients to improve their range of motion, strength, and flexibility after surgery, potentially leading to faster recovery times and a smoother rehabilitation process.
Reduced risk of complications
Patients who engage in post-operative therapy may be at a reduced risk of developing complications after surgery, such as blood clots or infection. This is because rehab can help to promote healing and reduce the risk of other health conditions that could impact recovery.
