CACC offers a rehabilitation program for patients who are anticipating surgery by offering care before and after surgery. Before surgery, a patient can expect to be educated by a therapist about all aspects of the upcoming surgery, including exercises (both pre- and post-operative), how to reduce pain and swelling, and what their goals for physical therapy should be before and after. Therapists remain in close communication with the referring physician in order to fully understand what surgery the patient is undergoing and to prepare an individual pre- and post-operative treatment plan.
Benefits of physical therapy pre- and post-operative include:
- Help with pain management
- Reduction of swelling before and after surgery
- Increased mobility
- Reduced recovery time
- Increased comfort levels pre- and post-operative.
Therapists maintain communication with the patient after the surgery, track the patient’s progress with the referring physician, and make any modifications to the treatment plan based on the individual patient’s progression.
