Surgical intervention can leave some patients feeling weak or impaired in their mobility. First Step Physical Therapy provides a range of post-surgical rehabilitation services to get these patients back on their feet.
Any kind of invasive surgery can leave you feeling weak and impaired in your mobility. Whether it’s a joint replacement, a heart bypass, or something altogether different, surgery takes its toll on the body, and it’s vital to take a proactive approach to rebuilding your strength and endurance.
First Step is a leading provider of physical therapy on Long Island, and we are always pleased to help patients who recently had surgery. Our therapists will work alongside you to understand your needs and goals, develop a tailored physical therapy plan, and coach you at each step of the way. Post-surgical rehab typically involves hands-on techniques to decrease pain, swelling, tightness, and loss of motion, as well as supervised exercises to regain strength and proper muscle function. Our goal is always to help you get back to full strength and functionality as soon as possible, while also ensuring that your body is healing properly and that you’re minimizing the risk of re-injury.
Here are a few common post-surgical conditions we treat, but not limited to:
- Total Joint replacements
- Spinal surgeries (laminectomy, fusion, discectomy)
- Arthroscopic procedures
