The Importance of Post-Operative Rehabilitation

After an orthopedic surgery or procedure, your ability to regain mobility, strength and function often relies on the physical therapy you receive. It can be the deciding factor as to whether you’re able to return to sport, work and everyday life. At North Boulder Physical Therapy, we are highly-trained and able to help restore your abilities without putting you at risk for reinjury.

Your physical therapy journey with us will typically begin shortly after surgery if immobilization is not needed. We’ll start with a complete evaluation of your capabilities and review of your operative report. Next, we’ll design a personal post-operative rehabilitation plan to meet your unique needs and goals.

Post-operative rehabilitation and care may include the following:

  • Treatment of swelling and inflammation
  • Post-operative pain management/reduction
  • Exercises to improve range of motion
  • Exercises to improve strength, flexibility
  • Manual therapy, soft tissue mobilization
  • Posture, balance, agility, endurance training
  • Gait pattern analysis and training
  • Self care and home exercise education
