Prepare for Surgery With Physical Therapy in O’Fallon, MO

Prepare for Surgery With Physical Therapy

Most people prefer non-invasive treatments, like medicine or physical therapy, for an injury or condition because surgery has lots of risks and a long recovery time. However, surgery is necessary sometimes and, in these cases, you will want to be prepared to experience the best outcome.

Surgery can make it difficult to do things on your own, like walking or going to the bathroom without any help. You have options to make your recovery better, though, like visiting a physical therapist for pre-surgical rehab.

Why you should choose physical therapy for pre-surgical rehab

Many people choose physical therapy for pre-surgical rehab because physical therapists are skilled in treating many conditions and injuries that affect the human body. The physical therapists at Excel Sports and Physical Therapy in O’Fallon, Missouri are trained and experienced in helping people prepare for surgeries to experience optimal recovery afterward.

Physical therapy for pre-surgical rehab at Excel Sports Physical Therapy focuses on strengthening and stretching the muscles, ligaments and tendons in the areas that will be affected by the surgery. This will help you stay strong and flexible after your surgery to help your body support itself and be in less pain.

Our post-surgical rehab treatments can give you:

  • Improved recovery rates — People who undergo pre-surgical rehab before surgery tend to need short hospital stays than patients who do not.
  • Reduced pain after surgery — Pre-surgical rehab helps keep your muscles strong and flexible, which reduces pressure off sensitive areas that could cause pain and immobility.
  • Improved mobility after surgery — Pre-surgical rehab can help you remain flexible after surgery. This means you can resume tasks like getting dressed without any help in less time.
