Pre-Operative Physical Therapy

At Carter Rehabilitation & Aquatic Centers, we understand the importance of comprehensive care throughout the entire surgical process. That's why we offer Pre-Operative Physical Therapy services, also known as 'prehab,' to help prepare patients for surgery and improve postoperative outcomes.

What is Pre-Operative Physical Therapy?
Pre-Operative Physical Therapy is a proactive approach that starts prior to surgery. The aim is to enhance the patient's physical strength and overall health, which can aid in a smoother surgical procedure and a quicker, more effective recovery.

Benefits of Pre-Operative Physical Therapy:
1.) Improved Strength and Endurance: Prehab can help increase strength, flexibility, and endurance, which are vital for a quicker recovery time after surgery.
2.) Reduced Pain and Swelling: An effective pre-operative therapy plan can decrease pre-surgical pain and control swelling, leading to a more comfortable recovery process.
3.) Better Understanding of the Recovery Process: Prehab gives patients a preview of postoperative exercises, enabling them to become familiar with the recovery process and setting realistic expectations.
4.) Reduced Recovery Time: Studies have shown that pre-operative physical therapy can significantly reduce the length of postoperative recovery, helping patients get back to their daily activities sooner.

At Carter Rehabilitation & Aquatic Centers, our experienced physical therapists will work with you and your surgeon to develop a personalized pre-operative therapy plan that suits your needs and health goals.
