Surgery Preparation and Recovery

Prepare for a smoother surgery and accelerate your recovery time with personalized, one-on-one physical therapy care.

Physical Therapy for Surgery Preparation and Recovery

Physically preparing for surgery is an often overlooked part of the wellness and recovery plan. Rather than waiting until post-surgery to begin treatment, pre-surgery care may be able to aid in the overall effect and lasting impact of surgery.

Whether you’ve waiting for surgery due to shoulder, ankle, knee, hip, back or neck-related issues, we can often help. By applying the right treatment methods – approved by and in conjunction with your general health care provider and surgeon’s direction – we may be able to help improve the starting point of the area in question, putting you on a better path to recovery
“Always encouraging and concerned with my well-being”

“The crew at Layton Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine (was) extremely helpful after having my ACL reconstruction surgery…They always tracked my progressions from session to session. I routinely got form critiques as I learned new exercises. I was regularly challenged to do more while not exceeding the bounds of my capabilities post surgery.”

Pre-Surgical Physical Therapy

Surgery is often the least desirable route to take due to injury. Unfortunately, it can’t always be avoided. Working with a physical therapist pre-operation can often provide many benefits, including:

  • Reduce inflammation and pain
  • Strengthen surrounding muscles and tendons
  • Alleviate additional pressure on surrounding areas caused by injury
  • Regenerate and promote your body’s ability to self-heal

The primary goal of any preoperative physical therapy treatment is to accelerate the healing process post-treatment. We are here to work with you and your doctor and/or surgeon to determine the best treatment plan for your age, lifestyle, injury, and surgical plan to get you back to feeling your best in the least amount of time possible.

Post-Surgical Physical Therapy

Whether you received pre-surgical care or not, physical therapy is often a key component to surgery recovery. Working together to strengthen your muscles, tendons and joints, our team of physical therapists will design a plan customized to your unique needs and situation, helping
you recover from surgery with the least amount of pain and down time.
