Physical therapy focuses on helping you recover from injuries, surgery, and degenerative diseases. In most cases, physical therapy is the first line of treatment for sports injuries and orthopedic conditions, from sprains, fractures, and ACL tears, to tendonitis, bursitis, and arthritis. The treatments you receive during physical therapy accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and ease pain. Physical therapy also restores strength, mobility, balance, and functional skills lost to health problems. Physical therapy is also an essential part of your recovery after orthopedic surgery. An individualized rehabilitation plan helps you heal and gets you back into action as quickly as possible.
However, the benefits of postoperative physical therapy go beyond orthopedics. You can significantly relieve pain and recover faster after surgeries unique to LGBTQ+ individuals. Crom Rehabilitation offers pelvic floor therapy, which targets the muscles that support the uterus vagina, prostate, bladder, and rectum. The pelvic floor muscles also control urination and bowel movements. Preoperative and postoperative pelvic floor therapy lowers the rate of pelvic floor dysfunction in transgender women undergoing gender-affirming vaginoplasty.
