Finding pre-surgical rehab in Caledonia, Michigan

Prepare for Surgery in Caledonia, MI

Surgery is usually the last option for people who have been injured or are suffering from a chronic condition. People try to avoid surgery and treat their conditions with non-invasive treatments, like medicine and physical therapy. That’s because surgery comes with a lot of risks, costs a lot of money and takes a lot of time for recovery.

Surgery also makes it difficult for you to walk around, lift objects and perform other daily tasks like using the restroom or getting dressed. You can help make these tasks easier during your recovery, though by preparing your body for surgery with pre-surgical rehab.

How can pre-surgical rehab help?

Pre-surgical rehab looks different for everyone depending on their type of surgery and their recovery goals. Generally, the focus is to strengthen and stretch the muscles, ligaments and tendons to help with:

  • Reducing pain — Exercising and stretching can help your muscles and ligaments stay strong and flexible enough to support your body and help reduce pressure off the areas affected by surgery. Physical therapy techniques should also get the blood flowing more, which helps deliver oxygen and nutrients that promote healing and help reduce pain.
  • Restoring independence — During pre-surgical rehab, your physical therapist can identify the challenges you will face after surgery and develop techniques and exercises to help you better be able to face those challenges and live independently.
  • Improving recovery — Recovering from surgery can take a long time but pre-surgical rehab helps cut down your recovery time and shortens your hospital stay.

At Advent Physical Therapy, we offer post-surgical rehab as well. Combined with pre-surgical rehab, post-surgical rehab can provide further assistance in your recovery process. Treatments in both of these procedures often include:


  • Hands-on therapy
  • Massage
  • Stretches and exercises
  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Ultrasound and more
