Pre & Post-surgery Rehabilitation

When surgery is necessary, the physical therapists (PTs) at Excel can enhance the outcome both before and after surgery. Our PTs will maximize your range of motion, strength and function prior to surgery, making the recovery go faster. Seeing the same PT after surgery is best for continuity of your rehabilitation.

Excel PTs know the post-operative protocols for all of the top orthopedic surgeons in the area. You can be comfortable knowing that we are a trusted referral destination for the many world class surgeons in Philadelphia and the suburbs.

What Is a Physical Therapist?

Physical therapists are health care professionals who help individuals maintain, restore, and improve movement, activity, and functioning, thereby enabling optimal performance and enhancing health, well-being, and quality of life. Their services prevent, minimize, or eliminate impairments of body functions and structures, activity limitations, and participation restrictions. Physical therapists receive intensive doctoral education in anatomy, physiology, pathology and rehabilitation. They are graduates of accredited university programs and licensed by the state.

What to Expect at Your Physical Therapy Sessions?

During your Initial Evaluation, our therapist spends a full hour interviewing you, testing and examining your condition, establishing goals with you, and developing an individualized treatment plan. Excel PTs take time to provide patient education around your condition and what to expect during the recovery process.

Subsequent treatment sessions are designed to systematically fix your injury, movement disorder, or pain. Once mobility is improved, then exercises are used to improve strength, balance and function. Injured athletes looking to return to sport often perform sport-specific training under the supervision of the therapist.
