Joubert Physical Therapy offers pre- and post-
operative care for all patients to ensure a quick return to normal activities of daily living. The main goal of pre-operative rehab is to assist the patient in gaining optimal strength and range of motion (ROM) in preparation for surgery.
The patient will be informed on what to expect in therapy after surgery and educated on the proper use of assistive devices, such as crutches and canes, if needed.
The focus of post-operative rehab is to manage pain and swelling as the result of surgery, as well as increase ROM and strength in conjunction with surgical protocols.
