• Postoperative Care

    While many conditions can be effectively treated with chiropractic care and physical therapy, some conditions do require surgical intervention to maximize function. The surgery itself is the easy part...it's what follows that will determine your results. Not all surgeries are major but almost all surgeries require a course of rehabilitation. The therapists at F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic are well trained and have extensive experience in treating post surgical cases and producing optimal outcomes for their patients.
