Pre & Post Surgery

Evolve Physical Therapy has the experience and knowledge to treat pre & post surgery recovery.

Surgery treatment requires patience and care for you to recover faster and stronger.




We Are Pre & Post Surgery Rehabilitation Specialists


In advance of an expected surgery, we’ll help you get a jump on recovery! Pre and post surgery physical therapy is a very important factor in recovery. Physical therapy prior to a surgical procedure has been shown to:

  • Reduce pain
  • Improve strength
  • Increase range of motion (ROM)
  • Improve functional capacity with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)

For the best results, we recommend an assessment for establishing a treatment plan prior to surgery to maximize your strength and range of motion.  This approach is supported by research to shorten recovery time and a quicker return to functional independence.


For times when the unexpected happens, we’ll draw on decades of experience in both rehabilitative and high-level performance settings. We strive to educate you in every phase of your post surgery recovery. To achieve your goals, physical therapy is a necessity following surgery. We will guide you one-on-one to:

  • Decrease your swelling
  • Decrease your pain
  • Improve your strength
  • Increase your ROM
  • Re-learn how to effectively and efficiently perform your ADLs (walk, lift overhead, negotiate stairs, etc.)
  • Safely progress your exercises to achieve your goals (return to sport, return to work, enjoy your life, etc.)

Why we are different

You will always receive the highest quality of care by working with an experienced, licensed physical therapist. No techs. No aides. No assistants. No double booking.

Our physical therapy goal is to provide the best help that we can to ensure you have a healthy, more pain-free life! We do not have aids and assistants because we want all of our patients to get the right care and treatment plan from our most qualified physical therapists. We cut out the middle man to give you the most effective treatment. 

Why pre and post surgery physical therapy?

What Kind of Pre or Post Surgery Injury Do I Have?

Joint Replacement Injury

Surgical Injury

Spine Injury

Injection Therapy Injury

Fracture Injury

Pre & Post Surgical Injuries We Treat

We treat an array of pre and post surgical injuries at Evolve and here are some of the most common:

Fracture Surgery

Bones that do not heal themselves by wearing a cast, can require surgical treatment. That surgery, known as open reduction, can involve inserting pins, screws, rods and plates onto the bone to promote healing. Other surgeries may require bone grafting. Physical therapy is needed to help with mobility after surgery, as well as regaining strength and muscle to the injured area.

Joint Replacement

Joint Replacement Surgery removes the damaged, arthritic or diseased joint and replaces it with brand new, usually metal or plastic, prothstesis. Physical therapy helps patients regain control of their new joint by strength and stretching exercises.

Tendon Repair

Tendon Repair Surgery involves making an incision into the affected area and removing the damaged tendon tissue while carefully sewing the ends of the tendons back together. Therapy is recommended after this surgery to help bring back strength and improve range of motion.

Ligament Reconstruction

Ligament Surgery involves replacing the torn ligament with a new, healthy ligament. Usually the new ligament is grafted from the kneecap or hamstring. Physical Therapy is recommended to stretch and strengthen the new ligament to prevent further damage.

Spinal Surgery

A spinal injury is damage to any part of the spine or nerves of the spine. There are many different types of spinal injuries and those injuries vary in symptoms. Visit our Spine Injury page to find out more!

Injection Treatments

A combination of injection treatments, (cortisone, steroid, epidural, etc.) and physical therapy can be used to treat pain, inflammation and bursitis in joints.
