Surgical or Post-Op Physical Therapy

Schedule Appointment

The
BPT Post-Operative Program

We know that surgery is never convenient, so we try to make the process as seamless as possible.

You will attend your one-on-one physical therapy sessions 1-2 times per week depending on what you and your therapist decide is best.

Then, you will receive a customized rehab program that you can perform using our facility…for free! We’ll instruct you on the proper form with each exercise and provide you with videos, but then come in at your convenience to complete your rehab exercise program. That way we don’t waste time during your one-on-one sessions doing 10-20 reps of each exercise. We want to save you time and money!

We have seen great success with this program and each week we progress your rehab program to ultimately reach your goals!

Important Factors to Consider After Surgery

Diet

Diet

We highly recommend maintaining a balanced diet of high quality protein, carbohydrates, and fat. We also recommend decreasing sugar intake to help reduce inflammation. Adequate water and fiber intake is very important for healing as well. Focus on eating fruits and vegetables and consider supplementing with turmeric or ginger as natural anti-inflammatory foods.

Activity level

Activity level

Surgery can significantly reduce your overall activity level, but we can help make modifications to keep you active. If you’re an athlete then we need to make sure you stay conditioned to aid you long-term recovery. Read more...

Goals

Goals

What is your goal after surgery? Whatever your goals are, we tailor your program to help reach your goals. During the later stages of recovery we will focus on getting you back to the sport or activities you love! Read more...

Keep you healthy

Post-surgical protocol

Many surgeons provide a post-operative protocol and we like to work alongside your surgeon to ensure the healing process goes smoothly. We communicate with your surgeon’s medical team to provide updates on your healing so you remain on track. There are specific things you can do and specific things you cannot do after your surgery and we’ll help make this simple for you to allow your body to heal properly. Read more...

QUESTIONS?

You can text our doctors anytime

Surgery can be scary! Our patients have the ability to communicate with our team to ask any questions. You can actually text our Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPT’s) at any time with questions. That way you feel comfortable and can always get an answer to any questions you may have about the post-surgical process.

Treatment Plan

We may use a combination of the following
techniques to help you get your life back:

  • Joint manipulation/mobilization to decrease pain and improve movement in the surgical area
  • Soft tissue mobilization to reduce muscle guarding and increase mobility around the surgical area
  • Dry Needling to reduce muscular pain and increase the health of muscle tissue
  • Neuromuscular retraining to teach your body how to move in a better way
  • Mobility training to increase flexibility and range of motion in the specific surgical area and surrounding joints
  • Strength training to increase your muscular capacity
  • Endurance training to improve your capacity to do what you love without pain
