Surgical Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Two main areas of deficit following surgery are strength and mobility. Your physical therapist will examine you on your first day in order to note gains throughout your rehabilitation. A comprehensive approach to physical therapy after your operation will allow you to bounce back more quickly.
