Pre-surgical conditions are common and may include everything from arthritis to a large, herniated disc. Many people have pain related to these conditions before surgery. Physical therapy aims at decreasing pain, increasing mobility and strength while also preparing the patient for surgery. In addition to the conditions mentioned above, the therapist will work on making you as comfortable as possible while you prepare for surgery.
Depending on your situation, Greendale Physical Therapy can help you manage these conditions including:
- Gentle range-of-motion and strengthening exercises as tolerated
- Manual therapies
- Modalities including heat, ice, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation
- Patient education regarding activities, posture, and biomechanics
Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC helped me regain the strength in my ankles and feet to keep me walking and continue to exercise and golf. The staff are all well skilled, pleasant, and supportive. I would highly recommend them to my friends for PT. They are a great group!
