How Pre-Surgical Rehab Helps Patients in Kentwood, Michigan

Kentwood, MI Pre-Surgical Rehab | Advent Physical Therapy

If you’re suffering from an injury or chronic pain, you probably look into non-invasive procedures for treatment. Medication and physical therapy can help you feel better without relying on the risky and painful procedures associated with surgery. However, surgery is sometimes the only option you have for treatment. If this is the case for you, you should look into pre-surgical rehab.

At Advent Physical Therapy in Kentwood, Michigan, we offer pre-surgical rehab to help people prepare for surgery and have a better recovery afterward. Each pre-surgical rehab is personalized to the needs of the individual patient, though, you can generally expect pre-surgical rehab to make use of:

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

The benefits of pre-surgical rehab

  • It helps reduce pain — Many pre-surgical rehab treatments include stretches and exercises to help the muscles and ligaments support the body better and reduce pressure from recovering areas. Stretches and exercises will also help your blood flow better, so you’ll receive more oxygen and nutrients to the recovering areas, which helps manage pain and improve recovery.


  • It helps you live more independently — Surgery can make you feel too weak and uncoordinated to accomplish many tasks on your own, like walking or taking a shower. Physical therapists can identify what tasks will be most challenging during your recovery, so they can include a plan in your pre-surgical rehab to help you prepare to face these challenges.


  • It improves recovery rates — Research shows that patients who have pre-surgical rehab tend to have shorter hospital stays than those who do not.

Ask your doctor or a physical therapist at Advent Physical Therapy about pre-surgical rehab to learn more. Make sure you ask about the benefits of post-surgical rehab as well.
