Prehabilitation prepares patients by maximizing functional capabilities, ROM, and outlining clear post-operative expectations prior to a surgical procedure.

What is pre-habilitation therapy?

During pre-habilitation therapy, physical therapists educate patients on surgery protocols, post-operative instructions, expected level of function, and expected pain levels after surgery. This is done by providing evidence-based care to maximize function, strength, ROM and improve movement patterns prior to surgery.

What are the benefits?

Patients who complete prehab have quicker recoveries decreased anxiety and a better understanding of what’s to come and how to get back to doing what they love.

According to the Harvard Medical School (1), Prehabilitation has been shown to improve patient surgery success rates.
