How long before results realized?

Recovery time depends on injury type and severity. 

Be Wary Of...

  • Treatments only focused on pain or anti-inflammatory drug use for extended periods.
  • Treatments by inexperienced therapists or unqualified staff.
  • Therapists who do not explain your condition, review the expected steps to recovery, or answer questions adequately.

Why Act Now?
Strengthening the muscles around the joint prior to surgery leads to a better and faster recovery. Effective rehabilitation before and after surgery is every bit as important as the surgery itself. Call our office for more information at (828) 877-2110). Soon you can be on the road to a pain free life!
