Pre & Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Are you preparing for a total joint replacement surgery? Physical Therapy will be your best friend throughout your rehabilitation process. Movement Physical Therapy will provide you with a steady progression of pre and post-surgical rehabilitation to get your joint back to functioning properly.

We believe that our clients get the most out of their rehabilitation program if they participate in both pre and post-surgical rehabilitation. Prior to surgery, Movement Physical Therapy will provide you with exercises to prepare you for recovery and tips on what to expect before and after your surgery. The more work you do prior to surgery, the easier the post-surgical rehabilitation process will be.

It is important to be prepared for your return home after surgery and we will provide you with knowledge about how to best care for yourself. You will need to know how to care for your surgical wound and how to walk safely with a walker. While you are still in the hospital, the main goal after surgery will be to get your body functioning just well enough to get in and out of the car and to be able to go from a seated to a standing position.

Your post-surgical rehabilitation with Movement Physical Therapy will begin two to four weeks after surgery and we recommend that you visit us three times a week for up to three months. At this time, our goals will be to reduce swelling and pain while improving your range of motion. Your treatment may consist of soft tissue massage, stretching, mobilization, range of motion exercises, and modalities such as ice and electrical stimulation. We will also customize an at home exercise program for you that will be based on your independence level.

If you plan on receiving a total joint replacement, Movement Physical Therapy wants to be at your side for your pre and post-surgical rehabilitation. We have two locations for your convenience at Snohomish and Canyon Park. Please call us if you have any questions or if you would like to set up your initial evaluation.
