Do You Have an Upcoming Surgery?

Are you planning on having surgery soon? Do you have any reservations? That is normal, but there is no reason to be concerned! Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance has everything you need for a successful procedure and a quick recovery. You can have faith in your recovery with us. Our pre-surgical physical therapy program produces excellent results!

Did you know you have control over how quickly you recover? Your fitness and health prior to surgery play an important role in your post-surgery recovery. Fortunately, Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance can help you prepare mentally and physically for a quick recovery after a procedure.

What are the Benefits of Pre-Surgical Physical Therapy?

Participating in pre-surgical physical therapy, according to the National Institutes of Health, will improve your postoperative results and shorten your recovery time.

Both before and after surgery, pre-operative exercises will improve your range of motion and movement patterns. You will be able to return to regular function much faster if you go into your surgery with strength, flexibility, and general good health.

We will design a training routine for you to follow throughout your recovery when you begin a pre-surgical physical therapy program at Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance. Here are some compelling reasons to consider physical therapy before surgery.

Our Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Estero, FL physical therapists can assist you with your current pain. They may also reduce your chances of experiencing severe pain in the future. Our physical therapist may use a variety of therapies, such as exercise, massage, or cold/heat treatments, to help alleviate or eliminate your pain.

The better you feel before surgery, the better you will feel afterward. According to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), pre-operative rehabilitation can improve surgical outcomes. This is both beneficial to your health and cost-effective!

Strength and endurance will improve as a result of physical therapy. As a result, your overall immunity will improve, reducing your chances of infection following surgery.

Having strong muscles prior to surgery allows you to return to your normal routine much more quickly. Your recovery should be much smoother if you participate in a pre-surgery rehab program.

Yes, you read that right. Your pre-hab may be so effective at relieving pain and improving your overall health that you will be able to avoid surgery entirely. Talk to your doctor about your treatment options if your health improves significantly after beginning physical therapy.

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)
