Post Operative Treatments with Advanced Protocols

At The Center for Physical Rehabilitation, our therapists develop individualized care plans for our post-operative patients that emphasize the use of exercise therapy, hands-on techniques, and modalities to address early phase goals of managing pain, reducing swelling, restoring range of motion and enhancing muscle control and strength.
