Pre and Post Surgery 

Let us help you speed up the road to recovery!

At Foundation Physical Therapy we understand that surgery is a frustrating process. You want to get moving and back to normal faster than your body will allow. We’re there every step of the way to help you through this. 

We recommend that everyone comes in for pre-operative visits if possible. During these visits we will get your muscles ready for the procedure to come using specific therapeutic exercises. Strengthening muscles before surgery is a huge determining factor in just how fast you can get going again after surgery. We are specialized in manual orthopedic physical therapy which means we can set you up for success before you even go in for surgery!

If you are coming to us after surgery we’ve got you covered. We will work with you from day 1 post-op all the way through the end of your recovery. Directly post-op we will help to manage swelling and pain while slowly getting you moving again. We will increase difficulty in exercises as appropriate for your surgery to get you back to normal as quickly as possible. We can use state of the art techniques such as getting you walking on our UnloaderDry Needling or Blood Flow Restriction Training as needed. We understand that you don’t want to be sidelined any longer than absolutely necessary. Your goal is our goal. 

Whether it’s a joint replacement, ACL repair, rotator cuff repair, spinal surgery or a general orthopedic surgery give us a call so we can help you get back on your feet!
