Don’t Just Recuperate — Move Your Body Better

Physical Therapy After Surgery

Andersonville Physical Therapy offers individualized rehabilitation programs for all orthopedic post-surgical procedures. Frequently treated procedures include, but are not limited to, total knee, hip and shoulder replacements; rotator cuff repairs; hip and knee surgeries; post-fracture rehabilitation; spinal surgeries, and tendon repairs.

Our therapists work to achieve the fastest possible recovery while protecting the surgical repair and your safety. Manual therapy is utilized to minimize the effects of post-surgical pain and swelling and to restore joint mobility and muscle function. We’ll regularly communicate with your surgeon and follow their surgical protocols.

We have a passion for helping you return to the activities you love

During your rehabilitation, we’ll also work to restore your muscle balance, alignment, and normal movement patterns. Your successful return to your favorite sport or hobby is the ultimate goal following any surgical intervention.

Using functional exercises and a variety of movements, we’ll provide guidance for strength, endurance, and sport-specific training as we progress your rehabilitation.

Prepare for your surgery with prehab

“Prehab” is a common name for preoperative physical therapy. If you have a surgery scheduled, it can be helpful to learn in advance what you can do to build strength and ease the process of rehabilitation. In addition to being a practical opportunity to prepare for your surgery, research has found that prehab often reduces the amount of treatment required to attain optimal function after surgery.
