Post Surgical Treatment

Having surgery? Most people are aware that post-surgical rehab is a crucial part of the healing process. What most do not know is that pre-surgical rehabilitation or “pre-hab” speeds recovery and allows for a smoother outcome. While rehab works to strengthen your body after surgery, pre-hab works to maximize your strength, endurance and mobility prior to your surgery date to allow for a more successful surgical process.


Possible Treatment Options

Aquatic Therapy

Therapy in our Hydroworx 350 or Endless Pool can speed up your overall recovery time. Typically following surgery comes, what has been known as the, ‘painful recovery process.’ But Aquatic Therapy offers hope and pain-free rehabilitation options. It decreases swelling and discomfort allowing you to unload your body weight and move freely in the warm water.

Land-based Therapy

Our land-based programs are designed specifically for each patient undergoing surgery to improve flexibility, range of motion and functional strength.

Electrical Stimulation

Modalities such as Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation can help to reduce pain and swelling, as well as facilitate muscle activation to increase strength.

Aquatic Therapy Helps Speed Ann’s Recovery Following Ankle Surgery

After she underwent surgery for a bicycle-accident ankle fracture, Ann's surgeon instructed to wear a boot and not put any weight on her foot, but approved her aquatic therapy with our Hydroworx 350 underwater treadmill. 

After 2 1/2 weeks of weekly sessions, and performing her aquatic program in her own pool at home, she was able to walk on land independently.  Her surgeon noticed much improvement in her mobility at her first follow up visit after starting aquatic therapy.

She soon progressed to a land-based therapy program and after 11 sessions graduated with a 90-95% overall improvement.  Ann achieved her goals ahead of schedule and was able to leave for a trip to see her family in the mainland. 


How we've helped others relieve their pain

"Amazing staff!!

I had an auto accident in Sept. of 1992 and a second in April of 1995. I had bad back pain in my lower back ever since. Sleeping and turning while sleeping caused more pain.

Then, praise God for Moon Physical Therapy! I can turn in my sleep without pain! Yay! I have less sleepless nights. My pain levels have dropped. Range of motion is much better than it’s been in years! Thanks a bunch Julie and staff. God Bless all of you now and always.

P.S. – the burning pain was gone from my first visit. Has been gone ever since! "

"On August 1, 2009, I had a right hip replacement at Queen’s Hospital. After time, my hip and thigh would hurt and I was barely able to walk. Dr. Mark Lum recommended that I go to Moon for physical therapy...

Julie Moon, owner and physical therapist, and her staff worked on me and together with many exercises, I found some relief after six weeks. I went back for another six weeks and now I am able to walk with no pain.

The work that Julie and her staff did for me is immeasurable. If you have physical pains, I recommend going to Moon Physical Therapy for treatment without any reservation."
