Do You Know Physical Therapy Could Benefit You Even Before Your Surgery?

Many people participate in physical therapy treatments after surgery as part of their recovery plan, which is undeniably helpful for the healing process.

What I need to know about pre-surgical physical therapy?

It is no secret that the preparation for surgery can leave you feeling anxious, but a pre-hab program may be able to put your mind at ease.

Pre-surgical rehabilitation, also referred to as pre-hab, is becoming an increasingly recommended practice by surgeons, as it can improve the outcomes for their patients. Studies have shown that beginning physical therapy a month or so before surgery can significantly speed up your recovery time.

A pre-surgical rehabilitation plan will help you get physically and mentally prepared for your upcoming procedure.


How can I get started with pre-surgical physical therapy treatments?

Pre-surgical rehabilitation has been known to provide a number of benefits for surgical patients.

By consulting with our therapist at Long Island Physical Therapy, you can find out what treatment plan will be best for you to achieve optimum results.

Starting a pre-hab program means you’ll be able to establish a positive training routine that you will already be accustomed to 

before your surgery, and that you can take into your recovery for a better outcome.

When you are as strong, flexible, and healthy as possible, you are able to regain normal function much quicker, following surgery.


How do I know cupping will work?

While there are some apprehensions toward cupping, there is real science behind it. The suction within the cups creates negative pressure, which helps to increase hydration and blood flow to body tissues, ease up adhesions, and eliminate excess fluids.

It is a versatile treatment that can be modified for your condition, whether you are in need of deep tissue massage or lymphatic drainage.

It is important to note that cupping is not a treatment method that will be performed on skin with wounds, infection, burns, or active inflammation.

Note: Cupping can sometimes create bruises on the skin that can last up to two weeks. Bruises typically resolve themselves with time and should not be of concern.
