Catonsville and Owings Mills Post-Surgery Therapy
Rehabilitation using post-surgery therapy after back or orthopedic surgery is a critical component of a successful recuperation. In many cases, a patient’s ability to return to their regular activities relies on physical therapy. Our physical therapists help identify your body’s imbalances after surgery and work to retrain your body in order to regain normal movement, flexibility, stability, and function.
There are several benefits to post- operative physical therapy. Among the benefits are decreased risk of post-surgical complications, faster healing, and improved circulation. Our goal is to return you to your pre-surgery or injury activity level. Your post-operative therapy may include:
- Passive and active muscle building exercises
- Gait analysis and retraining
- Improving range of motion through flexibility exercises
- Manual therapies
- Pain modulation and inflammation control via use of heat, ice, and massage
- Education and home exercise instruction
Pre-Surgery Therapy Can Speed Recovery
A successful post-operative outcome often starts with pre-surgery therapy. Most people are familiar with the benefit of post-operative physical therapy. However, many are unaware of the benefits of structured pre-surgery therapy has on recovery.

- Mentally prepare for your upcoming surgery

- Prepare for post-surgery by familiarizing you with exercises
- Reduce pain and inflamation
- Improve your overall fitness
