Essentials Prior to Surgery
Your Body Needs Prehabilitation
Prehabilitation can be applied to individuals in the offseason preparing for a sport or activity (see Injury Prevention page), specifically those awaiting orthopedic surgery. The more conditioned the body is prior to surgery, the better it will perform and recover afterward.
At IPA Physio, your prehab begins with an in-depth, full body movement and strength analysis to identify problematic and dysfunctional areas. We then work with you to develop a program aimed at maximizing function around the surgical area and throughout your entire system. This approach helps to ensure your post-surgical success.
*In some cases, the prehab program has been so successful that patients actually cancel their scheduled surgery!
IPA Physio’s prehab program uses our FMT foundation to improve core and regional strength, coordination, proprioception, and stabilization of the problematic area to enhance its relationship with the rest of the body.
Areas of patient-specific, hands-on treatment include:
- Soft tissue Mobilization: Enhance mobility
- Functional Movement Patterns: Range of motion and movement activities
- PNF Techniques: Optimize stabilization, proprioception, balance, and strength
- CoreFirst Strategies®: Optimize your posture and movement strategies
