Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

Recover faster with RPT's post-surgical rehabilitation programsThe surgeon’s preference, the specific surgical procedure, and the intraoperative findings will all guide the course of treatment for a patient at RPT. The rate of progression through the rehabilitation process will be typically determined by your surgeon’s specific post-operative protocol and other underlying factors such as the condition of the joint and the chronicity of the physical impairments. The proper progression of weight bearing (in the case of a hip, knee or ankle surgery), increasing ROM (range of joint motion), and progression of strengthening and functional activities will all be coordinated with your referring surgeon.

Often, your surgeon will recommend a “pre-operative” rehabilitation program with the goals of decreasing inflammation (swelling), restoring normal range of motion (ROM), muscle function and normal gait. A good example of this would be the case of a torn ACL and scheduled reconstructive surgery. The research indicates that restoring ROM pre-operatively decreases the incidence of post-operative arthrofibrosis (scar tissue). An additional, important component of the pre-operative program at RPT is patient education which can lead to a much better outcome in the post-operative rehabilitation program.
