Post-Surgical Care

Pre & Post-Surgical Physical Therapy

Our therapists at Move Better understand that choosing where to rehabilitate after surgery is a big decision. We also understand that once surgery is over, the goal for our patients is to get back to living a pain-free life as soon as possible. Our orthopedic board-certified, doctoral-trained staff has extensive experience with post-surgical strengthening and rehabilitating a wide variety of surgical diagnoses including (but not limited to):

  • Total Shoulder Replacement and Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement

  • Meniscal Repair and Debridement
  • ACL Reconstruction
  • Total and Partial Knee Replacement

Choosing Move Better to help you recover means working with an experienced therapist who will work closely with you and your surgeon to ensure your recovery is quick and complete. At Move Better we believe the more active patients are in their own recovery, the faster they will get better. We emphasize teaching self-care and at-home exercise programs on the first visit. Our home exercise programs are customized with specific text, pictures, and exercise videos for each patient.

Pre-Surgery Strengthening

Research shows that better strength and motion before surgery correlate with better outcomes after surgery. Pre-surgery physical therapy rehabilitation can help you recover faster, experience less pain during recovery, and possibly shorten your overall recovery time. Our therapists can instruct and guide you safely through a program that addresses your individual strength and flexibility deficits to prepare you for surgery.
