Pre-Surgical Rehab in O'Fallon, MO

Surgery is generally the last option for people who are suffering from an injury or debilitating condition because surgery has a lot of risks and a long recovery time. Sometimes, surgery cannot be avoided, and in these cases, it’s best to prepare as much as possible beforehand.

During your recovery, you may be in a lot of pain and may find it difficult to complete certain tasks like walking, getting dressed or using the restroom without assistance from others. However, you can help shorten your recovery time and regain your independence to complete these tasks with pre-surgical rehab.

What is pre-surgical rehabilitation?

Pre-surgical rehabilitation is a treatment option offered by the physical therapists at Excel Sports and Physical Therapy. It aims to help surgery patient prepare their bodies beforehand to handle the trauma from surgery. Pre-surgical rehabilitation can help:

  • Reduce your pain — The exercises involved in many pre-surgical rehab treatments help deliver oxygen and nutrients to the areas of your body in need, which helps with healing and pain management. Plus, stronger muscles can help support the body and reduce pressure off of recovering areas and reduce pain.

  • Improve your mobility — During your recovery, it can be more difficult to move and do things on your own. Pre-surgical rehab can assist you in remaining flexible and strong, so you can move and do things better than you would be able to do without treatment.

  • Increase your recovery speed — People who have pre-surgical rehab tend to have shorter hospital stays and recovery times than those who do not.

Pre-surgical rehab treatments are personalized to the needs of each unique patient. Depending on the severity of your surgery and other variables, like age, medical history and personal fitness, your treatment may include:

  • Hands-on therapy
  • Massage
  • Stretches and exercises
  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound and more
