How Can Physical Therapy Help with Pre- and Post-Surgical Rehabilitation?

Physical therapy plays a vital role in pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation by addressing impairments, restoring mobility, and promoting tissue healing throughout the surgical process. 

Before surgery, physical therapists focus on prehabilitation, incorporating exercises, manual therapy techniques, and education to optimize strength, flexibility, and function, thereby enhancing surgical outcomes and facilitating recovery. 

After surgery, physical therapists tailor rehabilitation programs to your specific needs, focusing on pain management, scar tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and progressive exercise to promote healing, restore function, and prevent complications.

How Can Occupational Therapy Help with Pre- and Post-Surgical Rehabilitation?

Occupational therapy focuses on helping individuals regain independence in daily activities and improve quality of life following surgery. 

Before surgery, occupational therapists assess your functional abilities and may provide recommendations for assistive devices, home modifications, and adaptive techniques to facilitate a smoother recovery process. 

After surgery, occupational therapy focuses on regaining independence in self-care activities (e.g., dressing, grooming, bathing), improving upper extremity function, and facilitating a safe return to work or leisure activities.


Pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation may address a variety of symptoms and impairments, including:

  • Pain and inflammation
  • Muscle weakness or atrophy
  • Joint stiffness or immobility
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Difficulty walking or performing activities of daily living
  • Impaired balance or coordination

Whether you’re preparing for surgery or recovering from one, seeking professional rehabilitation services is essential for optimizing your recovery and achieving the best possible outcomes.
