Pre-op Physical Therapy- A MUST!

I finished my preoperative physical therapy this morning.  For so many years I ordered this a was never really sure of its value.  Now I am sure- it’s really great.  It lowers the fear of what to expect and in a controlled setting reviews all the exercises before you have the postoperative pain.  Alex, Amber, and Sam, my physical therapists at IRG in Mill Creek, Washington were right on.  Caring and comprehensive.  It’s amazing that every little thing from which foot to put first to how to position your leg has a science behind it.  I really valued this appointment.  We went over exercises, equipment, and modalities to decrease the pain.  Pre-op PT- Don’t go into the OR without it!
