A new study has found that as few as 1 to 2 sessions of preoperative physical therapy can reduce postoperative care use by 29% for patients undergoing total hip or knee replacement, adding up to health care cost savings of more than $1,000 per individual.
Statistics prove that recovery is made faster and safer when you prepare ahead of time for your surgery. Everyone wants to recover in the comfort of their own home and it can be done with the proper care. You deserve an easier, faster, and safer recovery after your surgery and we can help make it happen.
Did you know that we see patients before surgery, not just after?
By scheduling a pre-hab visit physical therapists can work with patients to:
- Decrease pain and swelling
- Improve range of motion and strength
- Provide pre-op instructions and self-care education so you are ready when your surgery day arrives
- Provide slings, knee braces, crutches, compression stockings, etc., if needed
Better shape going into surgery. Better shape come out of surgery.
Did you know “Prehab” is effective for athletes?
Prehab is an emerging health trend proven to keep athletes and active individuals away from preventable injuries and unnecessary surgeries. A single injury can stay with a person for an entire lifetime, even with careful rehabilitation.
Prehab is a proven, common sense technique to thoughtfully prevent injuries before they happen. Preventing injuries decreases healthcare costs, and can improve the quality of life for many Americans.
Prehab is the most effective way of addressing preventable injury in sports. It links experienced professionals with effective prevention information and educated athletes. Request that your healthcare provider is a certified prehab specialist.
