How can we help you?

It is important to understand that physical therapy can be a long process after surgery. The differences between the time needed for recovery between different clinics is huge, and patients should have that clearly in mind. As a result, the core of your recovery at USA Sports Medicine is doing the right exercises at the right time, with the correct balance between not enough and too much exercise. That balance will be guided by one of our expert physical therapists during the weeks and months after surgery as the program will keep evolving to help you reach your goal.

Post-Surgical Rehabilitation - USM

Our first priority is to relieve pain and help you return to your prior level of function. After surgery, it is common for people to experience some degree of pain, swelling and/or loss of range of motion. The goal of rehabilitation is to help patients overcome these issues so that they can once again live their lives without pain or restriction.

In addition to helping patients recover from the effects of surgery, physical therapy can also help improve:

  • Overall fitness
  • Muscle strength
  • Joint mobility
  • Endurance
  • Balance
  • Coordination


Rehabilitation after surgery can be a frustrating and challenging process, but our team at USA Sports will be there with you every step of the way to ensure that you reach your goals.

At USA Sports Medicine, our physical therapy specialists will help you get started on a personal rehabilitation plan that will help you recover from surgery as quickly and thoroughly as possible.

A physical therapist will create customized treatment plans based on your medical history, current health needs, and future fitness goals. Our treatment plans are comprehensive and cover all phases of a healthy recovery process. These include physical therapy programs to meet your specific needs, manual therapy to reduce pain and swelling, at-home exercises to improve range of motion, and patient education to ensure safety and good habits.

Studies show improved pain relief, at least for the first 6 months when compared to cortisone injection – a safer alternative to a cortisone injection.e
