Physical Therapy BEFORE Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Physical Therapy BEFORE Total Knee Replacement Surgery

January 12, 2021

Picture this …

Imagine you have a surgery or procedure coming up and you know you will be needing rehab afterwards. When a lot of us think about Physical Therapy we only think about the part that comes after the surgery. We think to ourselves “This is the place I’m going to go to either get back to where I was, or hopefully to a better place than I was before”.

This is a good mindset to have and at Synergy Physical Therapy & Wellness and Wellness our mission is to get you back to doing the things you want to do the most and to be as active as possible for your overall health and well being.  

BUT…this is only half the picture.

Now I want you to imagine that instead of waiting until after surgery you decide to be proactive. You want to give yourself the very best chance of recovering more quickly, decreasing the pain following surgery, and getting to a higher level of function after the surgery.

This is where “PreHab” comes into play.

“PreHab” as we call it is the process of optimizing your range of motion, strength and functional ability BEFORE surgeries such as;

  • Total Knee Replacement
  • Total Hip Replacement
  • Total Shoulder Replacement
  • Rotator Cuff Repair
  • ACL Repair
  • Spinal Fusion
  • Spinal Decompression

…and just about any other Orthopedic Surgery

Prehab is participation in structured, purposeful and professionally guided movements and techniques in order to avoid further injury, decrease pain and to prepare for surgery.

During your initial evaluation one of our highly trained therapists will figure out the best plan of care to speed the transition from where you are now, to completion of surgery, and onward to the most important thing — getting you back to doing everything you want to do as fast as possible. Also addressed are key areas of current stiffness and weakness, what to expect after surgery, and we also answer any other questions you have to be sure you are going into surgery feeling as comfortable as possible.

Another added benefit is that since we already know you are your unique situation and you now know us you will feel much more comfortable about resuming with us.

Remember, you DO NOT have to wait until after surgery to come and see us!

You can take the initiative now and give us a call for a free consultation. There is no referral or orders required to take advantage of this program. This program is also covered by insurance.

At Synergy Physical Therapy & Wellness and Wellness we want the very best outcome for you!
