To Make a Complete Recovery After Surgery, You Need Custom & Specific Rehab

Going through a tough and daunting surgery can be an emotionally and physically challenging experience.

As you embark on the road to recovery, you undoubtedly want to make a complete and successful comeback.

However, not all post-surgical rehabilitation is created equally.

Patients need the expertise, care, and personalized attention necessary for optimal recovery, which can be the difference between making a complete recovery to a partial recovery.

So, why chance it?

At Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance, we take a different approach to your post-surgical rehab. We collaborate with you to create a post-surgical rehab plan that will ensure your success.

The Following Post-Surgical Conditions We Can Help With

Here are some common conditions that may necessitate surgery:

  • Total Knee Replacements

  • Total Hip Replacements

  • Repairs to the ACL, MCL, and/or Meniscus

  • Spinal Fusion & Laminectomies

  • Shoulder Pain & Rotator Cuff Tears

  • Athletic & Sports Injuries

Surgery to treat these conditions will have a significant impact on your body. Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance will assist you in getting back on your feet after surgery.

The Problem With Most Post-Surgery Physical Therapy Rehabilitation

  • Dealing with different therapists each time, leading to inconsistency in treatment approaches.

  • Working with inexperienced new graduates who may lack the expertise needed for specialized post-surgical rehab.

  • Interacting with physical therapy assistants and technicians instead of experienced doctors of physical therapy, potentially compromising the level of care.

  • Receiving only a half-hour of care during each session, limiting the time and attention dedicated to individualized treatment.

  • Missing out on the benefits of manual therapy, which can be essential for targeted and effective rehabilitation.

  • Facing generic and one-size-fits-all treatment plans that may not address specific post-surgical needs adequately.

  • Feeling frustrated with a lack of progress due to suboptimal or uncoordinated rehabilitation efforts.

  • Experiencing limited one-on-one support and personalized attention during the recovery process.

  • Struggling with a lack of specialized programs tailored to the unique challenges of post-surgical rehabilitation.

  • Risking potential setbacks and longer recovery times due to inadequate or inappropriate rehab methods.

What are the Benefits of Post-Surgical Rehabilitation?

  • Physical therapy addresses the root cause of the problem, whereas pain relievers simply mask the pain sensation. A physical therapist will help you heal by using specific treatments, therapies, and techniques.

  • The most critical factors associated with a successful outcome after surgery include the patient, the surgery itself, and the rehabilitation afterward. As a patient, committing to the guidance from your physical therapist and surgeon is critical to a successful outcome.

  • Although some situations and events can occur unexpectedly, having an experienced surgeon and an accurate diagnosis is crucial for a successful post-operative experience.

  • Working with one of our skilled physical therapists is the link between the patient and the surgeon. Our team will explain the steps you need to take and give you personalized therapies to ensure you have the best possible outcome.

  • You may experience physical limitations following surgery, but our physical therapist will show you how to work around them. In many cases, this is possible thanks to the use of our advanced technologies.

  • Your rehabilitation plan will include suggestions for any lifestyle and/or dietary changes you can make to improve your long-term health, prevent future damage, and avoid further surgery.

Our Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Estero, FL physical therapists will design a personalized recovery plan for you to help you heal and return to your everyday life.

Dr Sharon was diligent in dealing with my back and neck issues. She increased my mobility tremendously and the home exercises she gave me did wonders for my golf game and general health. I want to continue a program to increase my mobility even more and enjoy the benefits of painless activities. Her program has done wonders

In September 2022 I had a complex shoulder surgery and began a regimen of physical therapy with Dr. Sharon Sims of Back in Motion here in Verandah. I can only say that today I’m in better physical shape then I’ve been in years. By following her treatment plan I’m able to play “pain free golf” a couple of time a week and participate in fitness activities -- pickleball is next on my list. It wasn’t easy, requiring a lot of work, but it paid off. Thanks Dr. Sharon.I have been seeing Dr. Sharon for a few weeks. After the 2nd visit the severe lower back pain was alleviated. So much so that I have been able to resume golf with much better swing ( although that's not saying much LoL).If you need physical therapy this is the place and she is the right doctor.Be prepared to work hard. If you follow directions you'll be satisfied.

Dr. Sharon is a miracle worker! I ended up with nerve damage after a partial knee replacement and was very slow to recover. Dr. Sharon kept me motivated even though I was not seeing immediate improvement. I kept at it and she has helped me build back my quad strength and range of motion. She noticed I also had some back issues and the orthopedic inserts she recommended for me are really alleviating my back pain and helping me with my gait. I also tried dry needling and that also helped relieve pain and helped with my range of motion. My surgeon said it could take up to a year for my nerves to regenerate and I plan on continuing to see Dr. Sharon until I reach my goal of walking without a limp and being able to resume an active lifestyle. Dr. Sharon was able to adapt exercises so that I could feel that I was improving and her vast experience in the field was obvious. I strongly recommend Dr. Sharon for both flexibility and pain treatment as well as post operative care. She is the best!

Sharon is an excellent physical therapist, highly competent, professional and personable! She has been helping me with both my shoulder and my back. I am now comfortably walking, doing the elliptical and biking, and will be golfing and playing pickleball soon. Thanks so much!

I attended an arthritis discovery seminar by Dr. Sharon Sims and found it very informative. I booked my first appointment for an evaluation and the office staff made the process extremely easy and more importantly, efficient! Dr. Sharon's diagnosis was thorough and a treatment plan immediately put into place and future appointments booked. I feel much better after just 4 appointments. Thank you, Dr. Sharon and Back in Motion! Highly recommend!

I suffered a stroke in early October 2021. The stroke mostly resulted in numbness and loss of sensory perception on my left side. However, Dr. Sharon pointed out that it also involved some loss of some motor skills along with a weakened sense of balance.Dr. Sharon has been working with me not only in strengthening my left side but also increasing my sense of balance which has definitely improved over the last several weeks. My golf game has also improved as a result of the therapy.Dr. Sharon’s diagnostic and evaluation skills are exceptional along with her ability to arrive at a treatment plan that has reduced some of the damage from my stroke. I highly recommend Dr. Sharon and am thankful for the physical therapy which she has provided.Thanks,Gary C. Reich D.D.S. ( retired)
