Treatment after surgery

Physical therapy after surgery is extremely important for ensuring a full recovery. In addition to many other benefits, post-surgical rehabilitation can also help you regain full range of motion in the affected area. Sunshine Physical Therapy specializes in post-surgical physical therapy for total joint replacements and partial tears of muscles and ligaments. In addition, surgeries related to hips, knees, arms, hands, shoulders, and feet/ankles often require physical therapy for optimal recovery.
Post-surgical physical therapy doesn’t just help ensure proper recovery, it also helps patients get moving again after surgery. Many times, surgery can make you feel debilitated and leads to long stretches at home where you live a mostly sedentary lifestyle. Physical therapy after surgery helps to get you out of the house, back into the world and being social again.
