Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

Following a surgical procedure our main goal is returning patients to their highest level of functionality, as quickly and safely as possible. Our multidisciplinary team of therapists and support staff specialize in creating personalized rehab programs that address a wide range of post-operative conditions and diagnoses following:

  • Joint replacement

    Following their joint replacement surgeries, patients' muscles are typically weak from lack of use. Physical therapy helps you build vital strength and overcome pain. Gentle exercise also plays a crucial role in ensuring that you heal properly so that you can regain a useful range of motion.

  • ACL replacement

    Reconstructive or replacement anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, surgeries involve grafts and other operations that take time to heal. Our rehabilitative programs help you deal with discomfort, restore your range of motion and avoid reinjuring your weakened leg.

  • Rotator cuff repair

    Although rotator cuff surgery can help shoulder pain, it may not restore your original strength. During the months it takes you to recover, we'll assist you while you adapt and retrain the muscles around your shoulders. Our health professionals help you pace yourself as you attempt to resume the sports and other activities you once enjoyed.

  • Lumbar/cervical laminectomy/discectomy

    Following these spinal surgeries, you won't be able to perform strenuous activities, drive, sleep in certain positions or even carry groceries. Fortunately, you can rely on our experienced Lafayette Indiana staff members from day one following your operation. We help you learn the correct ways to move your body, identify non-harmful exercises that maintain your back strength and determine what kinds of walking aids you might benefit from using.

  • Spinal fusion

    Effective therapy is critical to preventing further problems following your spinal fusion. The Saint Anthony team can help you avoid negative outcomes by learning new ways to walk, stand, sit and move safely.

  • Hand surgery

    You use your hands so often that you rarely think about it. After surgery, however, you'll have to retrain your brain and muscles for even the simplest activities. We look forward to teaching you new techniques that ensure you regain the dexterity you once enjoyed.
