Success of surgery greatly depends on what happens in the preoperative and postoperative stages. It is important to maximize the benefit of surgery by doing exercises that help to stabilize, mobilize and protect the area.
Your physical therapist will guide you through the stages of your rehabilitation and assist in monitoring your progress, setting your goals, and providing appropriate treatments to maximize your recovery.
Your physical therapist will also tell you how you can help with your recovery with what should be done and what should be avoided. You will be provided with a personalized rehabilitation program to get you back to your full level of activity and any sports as quickly as possible.
