Orthopedic and Post Surgical Rehabilitation
At Peak Form Medical Clinic we offer progressive rehabilitation to help you get back your quality of life. We’re here as a member of your team to make sure you’re able to return safely to your previous activities in work, sports and play.
Physicians commonly recommend rehabilitation with a skilled physical therapist immediately after surgery to accelerate the healing process and ensure your best path back to normal daily function.
Your Peak Form Physical Therapist will work closely with your surgeon to optimize the rehabilitation process, and execute a plan of care tailored to your specific operation. We are extremely careful to incorporate any post-surgical precautions from your surgeon and ensure safe, steady progress.
As you heal and get your strength and range of motion back, your therapy will focus on returning you to the highest level of function possible.
Our highly qualified physical therapists specialize in treating post-operative acute injuries, sporting injuries, arthritis and amputations. Rehabilitation focuses on problems associated with muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons.
