Why You Should Consider Pre-Surgical Rehab

At Health Loft, we understand how debilitating a surgery can be. In fact, many of our Physical Therapists have experienced the recovery process after a sports-related injury and surgery. What many people don’t realize is, sometimes Physical Therapy begins before you ever have a surgery in the first place.

We use a variety of tools and techniques to help people build strength before they are ever operated on. We assess what level you were performing at before your injury and set a goal to help you get back to that level after surgery is over.

If you’re facing surgery on your ACL surgery, experiencing a rotator cuff or labrum tear, or are preparing for knee or hip surgery, there are things you can do NOW. Contact us about pre-rehabilitation or ACL pre surgery rehab to improve your recovery process.
