At Prime Health Physical Therapy Center, our therapists work closely with orthopedic physicians on preparing patients for orthopedic surgery and facilitating their post-op recovery. Most patients will require physical therapy following their operation – in some cases, as soon as 24 hours postsurgery. The goal is to restore strength, flexibility and range of motion so that patients regain their optimum level of function and enjoy life once again.
Common conditions we manage include:
- Joint replacements (Total Knee, Total Hip etc.)
- Hip, knee and ankle injuries
- Shoulder, elbow and hand injuries
- Arthroscopic surgeries
- Ligament Reconstruction (ACL, Ulnar Collateral Ligament etc.)
- Neck and back surgeries (Fusion, Laminectomy, Discectomy etc.)
Helping you toward a quicker recovery.
Prior to your surgery, there are steps you can take to recover more quickly and successfully following your procedure. Our therapists can help you prepare for surgery by strengthening your muscles and improving your range of motion, without pain or aggravating your condition. Patients who are in better condition often have better outcomes following surgery. We welcome referrals from medical professionals for pre- and postoperative physical therapy. To learn more about how Prime Health Physical Therapy Center can help you or a loved one prepare for or recover from surgery, call (908) 925-9700 today.
A broad range of treatments that deliver results.
Clinical studies have shown that active manual physical therapy is highly effective for reducing pain and restoring function quickly after an injury. We use a range of proven, time-tested techniques along with the most advanced manual physical therapy, including soft-tissue mobilization, myofascial release and more. By promoting improved circulation through early movement, physical therapy results in faster healing of the injured surgical site and helps prevent scar tissue formation.
