Both of my total knee replacements were successful in large part due to the excellent care I received at Dynamic Physical Therapy - both pre and post-op. I also got great advice from Kevin as to exercises I can do long term now that my PT is finished. Thanks!

Post Surgical Rehab

Optimal Management Plan for Surgery Rehabilitation

After surgery, your body has essentially sustained a major injury and your body’s healing process will kick into high gear. If this process is properly managed and supported your body will heal well and the results of the surgery will be reduced pain and improved function. The physical therapists at Dynamic Physical Therapy are specialists in developing an optimal management plan for you after surgery. Each phase of healing requires a different set of components in your treatment plan and you need a professional to design a specific treatment plan for your specific circumstances.

Most commonly we provide physical rehabilitation after orthopedic surgery (surgery to bones, joints and muscles) but we also develop excellent physical rehabilitation programs for people that have undergone other kinds of surgery as well. Examples include abdominal surgery and cancer surgery.

The goal of post surgical rehabilitation is to help our patients, to develop an individualized plan to support the body’s natural healing process, to eliminate problems that interfere with healing and to strengthen and condition the body so our patients can resume normal life activities without pain or limitation.

A substantial part of the rehabilitation plan is patient education. We often function as a patient's “personal coach.” Letting you know what to expect, telling you what a normal aspect of the healing process is and what it is not. We also keep an experienced eye out for any post surgical complications. We communicate with your surgeon and other health care providers to assure you get the best care possible.
