Our purpose and the essence of PREHAB.

At Prehab Physical Therapy and Wellness, many knowledgeable patients and physicians choose prehab to experience better surgical outcomes.  Pre-Surgery Conditioning is perfect for people who care about their health and want to be ahead of their game, prepared to get the best results from their upcoming surgery. 

The procedures for which prehabilitation (Prehab) applies range from back, knee, or shoulder surgery to joint replacements and tendon or ligament repairs.  Additionally, the often long wait for some surgeries can create a deterioration of some conditions, which can be lessened with prehab.  Studies have proven that patients who undergo a successful and individualized prehab program demonstrate a greater percentage of strength gain, lower pain levels, more rapid improvement, shorter recovery times, less dependence on caregivers and more rapid return to regular activities.  Additionally, studies indicate that prehab patients have been conditioned to better undergo the stressors of surgery and experience decreased time in post-operative physical therapy programs.  One of our latest patients, John, says:  ‘Prehab is the best investment in my health I ever made.’
