Ankle Rehab/Reconstructive Surgery
Each ankle surgery is different. We will educate on weight bearing status as per your surgeon recommendations so that we can allow proper tissue healing. Early rehab will focus on walking with an assistive device, early mobilizations, swelling management, pain management and to improve range of motion.
We follow evidence-based practice with each injury and post op surgery, while using cutting edge technology such as BFR (Blood flow restriction training) for muscle strength and endurance, STEP principle for therapeutic exercises and various Manual Therapy Techniques including Dry Needling, IASTM, Cupping, Taping, Myofascial Release, etc to create a very personalized Rehab Program for you.
We will work closely with your Physician/ Surgeon team to ensure we are on the same page about your progress. We will listen to your goals and progress accordingly while addressing appropriate tissue healing. We see variety of patient populations from the High level Professional Athlete to the person whose goals are to walk, garden and perform regular activities of daily living. We will personalize our rehab program just for you and your goals.
