When one finds out they must have surgery, it often frightens them. They often think about how long they’ll be in the hospital for, who will help them following the surgery, and other important elements. However, one factor that is often overlooked is the importance of rehabilitation, not only following the surgical procedure but prior to it as well. Rehabilitation, both before and after the surgery, can greatly aid in your recovery and help you regain your strength and return to full mobility. Our orthopedist in Nassau County will advise you on the importance of pre and post-surgical rehabilitation.
