Why You Should Consider Post-Surgical Rehab

Why do I need pre-surgical rehab AND post-surgical rehab? Pre-surgical rehabilitation and post-surgical rehabilitation can be used to make any surgical procedure as easy as possible on your body. While pre-surgical rehabilitation is not always required in a treatment plan, it is always recommended as a way to yield the best results. The best results are always achieved through treatments before and after surgery. For example, according to an article on shoulder replacement surgery published by the Hofmann Arthritis Institute, “Formal physical therapy is not required before surgery, but it is advised to get in the best physical shape possible before surgery to lessen the change for complication and shorten your recovery time.” The same article also states that “The day after surgery, you will begin working with physical therapy to become comfortable using your new shoulder.” This demonstrates how beneficial it is to complete both pre-surgical rehab, and post-surgical rehab, as both are meant to make your recovery process as easy and comfortable as possible. Contact Eastern Shore Physical Therapy today! At Eastern Shore Physical Therapy, we are happy to say that we offer both pre-surgical rehabilitation and post- surgical rehabilitation services.
