Pre-Surgical Physical Therapy

Do you have an upcoming surgery?

Our Staten Island, NY physical therapy clinic will assist you in recovering more quickly!

Are you looking for ways to prepare for surgery? Do you want to do everything possible to improve your surgical outcome? A pre-surgical physical therapy program at Grasmere Physical Therapy will assist you in mentally and physically preparing for your upcoming surgery to ensure a successful procedure and a quick recovery.

To achieve excellent results, our pre-surgical physical therapy programs employ the most advanced techniques. Working with us throughout the process allows you to prepare for the surgery, the immediate post-surgery rehabilitation, and your long-term outcomes.

Your physical fitness before surgery can influence how well you recover after surgery and how long it takes you to recover. Minimizing or eliminating swelling, for example, can help with post-operative swelling. Furthermore, restoring or optimizing your range of motion and strength prior to surgery can have a significant impact on your post-operative pain and function.

Your pre-surgery fitness and health status are critical to your post-surgery recovery. Fortunately, Grasmere Physical Therapy can help you prepare mentally and physically for a quick recovery after a procedure.

Request an appointment with one of our Staten Island, NY therapists today to learn more about how pre-surgical physical therapy can help you recover faster from surgery.


What are the benefits of pre-surgical physical therapy?

Participating in pre-surgical physical therapy improves postoperative outcomes and shortens recovery time. Reducing swelling, increasing range of motion, and answering questions about the surgery, postoperative rehabilitation, and long-term outcome prognosis can all help you get on the road to recovery!

Before and after surgery, pre-operative exercises will improve your range of motion, strength, and movement patterns. You will be able to return to regular function much faster if you go into your surgery with minimal to no swelling, full range of motion, strength, and general health.

Why you should consider pre-surgical physical therapy in Staten Island, NY

When you begin a pre-surgical physical therapy program with Grasmere Physical Therapy, we will create a plan for you to follow up until the surgery and immediately afterward. Here are some scientifically proven reasons why physical therapy is beneficial before surgery.

Pre-hab can help you with your current aches and pains.

Our Staten Island, NY physical therapists can assist you with your current pain. Our therapists will use a variety of treatments, such as modalities and targeted manual therapy, to reduce swelling and improve joint and soft tissue mobility. These techniques can assist you in reducing your pain and learning how to manage any soreness or pain that may occur following surgery.

It improves the success of your operation.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” as the saying goes. The better you feel prior to surgery, the better you’ll feel afterward. The mental and physical toll that an injury takes on the body can have a negative impact on the outcome of surgery. Preparing ahead of time increases the likelihood of a successful outcome.

Physical therapists are experts in all aspects of health and wellness. Our therapists can talk about how strategies like proper sleep, nutrition, and mentally preparing can help you avoid negative outcomes and maximize your overall recovery!

It lowers your chances of complications following surgery.

Swelling and limited range of motion after surgery are common causes of additional pain and frustration. Learning about the signs and symptoms of serious issues such as blood clots and infection can also help you prepare to know what to look for and address to avoid complications.

Some people find rehabilitation difficult immediately after surgery due to pain or medication errors. Our team will assist you in understanding what is normal and to be expected, as well as what needs to be addressed as soon as possible.

Physical therapy will help you improve your range of motion, strength, and mobility in the weeks leading up to your surgery so that your body is as prepared as possible.

Pre-hab reduces recovery time.

Getting your body ready can help you recover faster. If you go into surgery with a lot of swelling, a significant range of motion deficits, weakness, and major balance or gait abnormalities, you will have to dig yourself out of a hole before you can begin rehabilitation from the surgery.

Strong muscles, a full range of motion, and no swelling prior to surgery allow you to get back to everyday life much faster. Participating in a pre-surgery rehab program can make your recovery go much more smoothly.

You may be able to avoid surgery entirely if you receive pre-operative care.

Yes, you read that right!

In some cases, going to physical therapy before surgery can help you get rid of the pain and limitations that drove you to surgery in the first place. Physical therapy has been shown in studies to produce comparable or better results than surgery. Physical therapy treatments are very effective for conditions such as meniscus tears, hip impingement, and shoulder impingement.

If your condition improves significantly after physical therapy, you can postpone or cancel your surgery and discuss your options with your surgeon.
