Pre/Post Op Therapy

During your pre-operative visit at NELA Rehab, we will explain to you what you can expect regarding therapy in your recovery post surgery. Depending on your condition, pre-operative visits may also incorporate exercises for you to perform that will prepare your body and maximize the results of the surgery. Post-operative care will begin as soon as possible in order to regain range of motion, strength, and function. Some types of post-operative interventions include the following:

  • Range of motion exercises
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Movements in and out of bed and onto different types of chairs
  • Self-care techniques for bathing, dressing and more
  • Walking training, including stairs and curbs
  • Community access, including learning how to negotiate elevators
