Therapies we may use in your pre-surgical treatment in Wentzville, MO

Our Excel Sports and Physical Therapy team in Wentzville, Missouri knows pre-surgical treatment may be helpful for you in several ways. Pre-surgery therapy is a program of physical therapy you go through before surgery, but many patients aren’t sure they need such therapy. However, our team knows it may be very helpful for you for several reasons.

For one thing, our team is aware many people aren’t at their best physically before surgery. After all, if you were in perfect health, you wouldn’t be having surgery in the first place. Our team is aware people may have a variety of pre-surgery problems caused by their injury or medical condition. Some of these problems may include weak muscles, pain, inflammation and blood flow problems. These problems may be caused, in part, by the fear of movement many people have before surgery. For instance, patients who are waiting for a knee replacement often use their knee as little as possible before surgery, which is understandable but won’t help during your surgery or recovery.

Our team may be able to help you be better prepared physically for your surgery and recovery. We can design a pre-surgery therapy plan for you that may help improve joint-supporting muscle strength, increase blood flow and reduce pre-surgery pain and inflammation. Our plans may be able to accomplish these goals by using therapies such as:

  • Manual therapy
  • Targeted strengthening exercises and stretches
  • Heat and cold therapy
  • Low-impact aerobic routines
  • Aquatic therapy
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Electrical stimulation

Our team has seen pre-surgical treatment plans combine these therapies into a program that’s very helpful for surgical patients. We’ve even seen patients who do better in surgery and recover faster and more completely thanks to pre-surgery therapy.
