Absolutely! Physical Therapy can help reduce any swelling, increase active and passive range of motion as well as increase strength and endurance after orthopedic surgery. Most importantly, attending physical therapy increases the functionality of the involved muscles, bones and other soft tissues much more quickly and effectively than just "staying at home" after surgery. It is important to get your body moving to help in the healing process! The more you exercise and make your body stronger the faster it will heal.
