Elite Spine And Sports Care of Totowa is proud to offer both pre-operative & post-operative conditioning and care in Passaic County NJ. Both pre & post-operative care are essential to not only a successful surgery but also the healing process that occurs following a surgery. This conditioning allows your body and mind to be ready for surgery and healing.

Operative Care varies depending on the patient and the subsequent surgery. Oftentimes, pre-operative conditioning includes cardiological stress-test but it can also include specialized physical therapy exercise to help minimize the negative side-effects of operation as well as lessen the recovery time. Studies show that just one pre-operative physical therapy sessions prior to knee or hip surgery can reduce post-operative care by 29%. This can not only get the patient on their feet faster but also save the patient money in post-operative care.

Pre-Operative Care 

Elite Spine And Sports Care of Totowa offers pre-operative care to patients in Passaic County and the surrounding area. During your appointment, your physical therapist will asses your condition and create a plan to ensure your surgery and recovery go as smoothly as possible. Pre-operative conditioning and rehabilitation are essential in prepping for surgery. Strengthening and adding stability to the surrounding musculature will help speed up recovery time and tissue healing. The improvement of exercise therapy and muscle strength before surgery and within the first month after surgery is an important outcome measure in the effectiveness of surgery.

Post-Operative Care
