Question: My Doctor said I will need knee surgery and then referred me to physical therapy. Why do I need therapy if I am going to have surgery?

Answer: Participating in physical therapy before surgery can help you regain lost range of motion and strength. This will better prepare you for surgery and improve post-surgical outcomes. Your recovery time may be less and the rehabilitation process may be easier. For additional information, please contact Rosie at STARS at 288-4670.
