There are many different types of orthopedic surgeries that affect several areas of the body such as: shoulder rotator cuff repair, spinal fusion, disc surgery, total knee/hip replacement, ankle ligament repair and fracture fixations. Physical Therapy has proven to be the best treatment for post-surgery rehabilitation to help ensure a positive outcome. In fact, studies have shown that the sooner Physical Therapy is started after surgery, the better the outcome for the patient. The Physical Therapist is trained in teaching patients about their condition, how to manage the symptoms, and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Pilates training combined with Physical Therapy is a powerful combination!
