Physical therapy for pre-surgical rehab in O’Fallon, Missouri

Pre-Surgical Rehab in O’Fallon, MO

Surgery is a part of reality that most of us hope never to face, but sometimes it is the only option for treating a physical condition or injury. People want to avoid surgery because it takes a long time to recover and comes with more risks than noninvasive treatments.

If you have a surgery coming up, you should prepare as much as possible beforehand. Your physician will discuss your options with you, which may include pre-surgical rehab with a physical therapist.

Benefits of pre-surgical rehab with a physical therapist

Physical therapists are great at helping people prepare for surgeries because of their knowledge of the muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones and joints. Physical therapy treatments focus on movements, exercises and other techniques that improve these areas of the body, which can help you prepare for surgery.

At Excel Sports and Physical Therapy in O’Fallon, Missouri, our physical therapists focus on strengthening and stretching the areas of the body that will be impacted the most by your surgery.

Pre-surgical rehab at Excel Sports and Physical Therapy can help with:

  • Reducing your pain — By strengthening and stretching your muscles, tendons and ligaments, physical therapy can help remove pressure from the sensitive areas of your body. This will also provide more structure and support for your body during recovery.

  • Improving your mobility — It can be hard to get around or do anything on your own after your surgery but pre-surgical rehab can help restore your mobility, so you can be more independent during your recovery.

  • Improving your recovery speed — Pre-surgical rehab has been shown to improve the rate of recovery after surgery. Patients who do not have pre-surgical rehab have longer hospital stays than those who do.
