Whether you had surgery yesterday or two years ago, the physical therapists from Intermountain Medical Center can help with your recovery. We’ll work with your surgeon to create a personalized treatment plan, which will reduce your pain and help restore your range of motion. Some of the techniques we might use include:

  • Passive range of motion exercises
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Ice compresses
  • Electric stimulation to reduce pain or improve muscle contraction

We’ll also teach you about stretches and strengthening exercises to do at home – as allowed by your surgeon.  

Types of surgeries we treat

  • Spinal surgeries (fusion, decompression, laminectomy, discectomy)
  • Joint replacements
  • Shoulder/rotator cuff repairs
  • Ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, and wrist surgeries

What to expect at physical therapy

  1. First: We’ll perform a detailed examination and evaluation to determine what types of activities and treatments will benefit you.
  2. Second: We’ll work with your surgeon to create an individualized treatment plan – along with a home exercise program – for you to do on the days you don’t attend therapy.

How you’ll benefit

  • Decreased swelling, pain, and tenderness where you had surgery
  • Improved blood flow
  • Improved mobility, flexibility, and strength
  • Faster, safer return to your previous levels of activity
