Pre-op Sessions for RTC and ACL Reconstruction
The ultimate goal of your surgery is to alleviate any pain you may have had and to improve your overall function. Together the therapist and surgeon will work with you in helping you achieve these goals. Successful outcomes require active patient participation in the rehab process. In this regard, Cape Cod Rehab has developed specific Pre-operative Rotator Cuff (RTC) and Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) programs designed to educate the patient in order to achieve a successful surgical recovery. The surgeon's office will schedule a date for your surgery. Once this date is set you can then schedule a pre-op physical therapy evaluation for 2 weeks before your surgical date. During this evaluation the therapist will:
- Measure your range of motion and strength.
- Discuss what to expect after your surgery, as well as go over the post-op therapy you will be receiving.
- Give you exercises to start when you return home from your surgery.
- Set up your post-op therapy appointment.
Please do not hesitate to contact the staff at Cape Cod Rehabilitation to set up an appointment or to have any of your questions answered.

The staff at Cape Cod Rehabilitation is highly trained in manual therapy & exercise implementation and progression. We offer a wide variety of hands-on techniques, as well as land and aquatic based exercises designed to achieve tissue / scar mobility, edema management, pain relief and increased range of motion and strength.

Cape Cod Rehabilitation work conditioning is a physical therapy program designed to return a patient to full functional capacity for a job that requires a high level of physical activity. Firefighters, EMTs and Police Officers are typical examples of such positions. Work conditioning is not only designed to prepare the individual to return to physical work, but also helps avoid re-injury.
For example, after an industrial accident, re-injury is most likely to occur shortly after a worker resumes his usual duties unless he has been properly prepared. Similar to an athlete resuming light practice before returning to competition, a worker whose job is physically demanding benefits from work conditioning. The term work conditioning refers to the therapeutic approach of progressively increasing physical work loads after injury back to the point that the worker was at prior to the injury. Performed in an outpatient setting, working conditioning is usually done 3-5 days per week for 2-3 hours. Work conditioning is done after a person has completed acute rehab whether it is post surgical or some other type of soft tissue injury. Once the worker transitions from the traditional outpatient program the focus shifts to more job simulation tasks, total body conditioning and endurance training depending on the demands of the job.

Our Physical Therapists have advanced training in Dance Medicine and put together a program using The Burdenko Method on both land and water.
