Research is continuing to demonstrate the benefits of rehabilitation before surgery by using physical therapy. Improving your pain and limitations in inflammation, strength, range of motion, and flexibility prior to surgery may allow for smoother recovery and less hospitalization time. Moreover, you will be able to meet your physical therapist and be comfortable in the environment that you will be performing your rehabilitation in post-operative as well as benefit from the patient education the physical therapist will provide during your sessions.
