Prepare, Prevent, Prevail. –

Our purpose and the essence of PREHAB.

This program is perfect for people who care about their health and want to be ahead of their game, prepared and in line to get the best results out of the surgical intervention.

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. One of our latest patients John calls it “the best investment in my health I ever made” In addition, studies also indicate that because patients have been conditioned to better undergo the stressors of the surgery in prehab, they experience decreased time in post-operative physical therapy programs.

At Prehab Physical Therapy & Wellness, many knowledgeable patients and physicians choose prehab, to experience better surgical outcomes.
