The close working relationships between surgeons, assistants and therapists is one of the primary reasons that treatment for surgical conditions at Austin Sports Medicine is effective and comprehensive. Some surgical procedures require a physical therapy visit before you even enter the operating room, in order to maximize post-operative outcomes. This pre-operative treatment is also used to inform the patient on all aspects of care and what they can expect in the days following the procedure.
At the first PT visit following surgery, the therapists at ASM outline the course of rehab, immediately start the patient on a home exercise program, and again ensure that the patient is informed on all aspects of care. This comprehensive treatment approach confirms patient understanding and knowledge of their condition and ensures that all areas of recovery are encompassed.
