When to Schedule Physical Therapy Before Surgery
During treatment, Dr. Miro will address your pain and focus on strength and mobility therapies. For some patients, this pre-operative care is highly effective and may even eliminate the need for surgery in the long-run. Those with a more extensive injury or debilitating disorder may ultimately require surgery, but pre-operative therapy can still help build up strength.
Using a range of physical therapy and sports therapy techniques, Dr. Miro works with patients to conservatively and carefully prepare the joints, muscles, and other soft tissues for the procedure. Getting your body ready before you undergo surgery will better position you for effective rehabilitation after your procedure.
