Pre & Post Surgery

Be stronger, heal faster and get back to living life

Hip and knee replacement surgeries are some of the most common operations performed in the U.S., with about 1 million completed each year. And each one of these patients share one thing in common: their desire to get back to the level of work, play and function they enjoyed before first experiencing joint pain. The physical therapy team at Athens Physical Therapy can get them there.

Working with a physical therapist before these and other surgeries can vastly improve your strength, education and confidence going into such a major procedure. In turn, these “prehab” efforts can improve the speed, success and cost of your rehabilitation experience post-surgery, getting you back to doing the things you love – free of pain.

Common Surgeries

  • Total and partial joint replacements
  • Knee surgeries
  • Back or neck procedures
