Physical Therapy After Surgery

Health Loft Physical Therapists understand how debilitating a surgery can be both mentally and physically.  Many of our therapists have endured the recovery process themselves after undergoing a surgical procedure.  We want to understand where you were before your surgery and help you get back to the level or better by using a variety of methods and tools in our post-surgical rehabilitation program.

Physical Therapy Treatment for Post-Surgical Procedure Recovery

Health Loft Physical Therapists in Chicago take the time to get to know you and create a personalized plan to help you achieve a healthy and quick recovery after surgery. 

Before beginning treatment, your PT will examine your mobility, strength and ability to perform certain tasks as they relate to the surgical area and your post-surgical limitations. Your doctor will use this information to customize a post-surgery rehabilitation program to accomplish your goals and return you to a healthy, active lifestyle.
