Therapy In Motion LLC

Helping patients prepare for surgery and recover post-operatively

Evaluation

We evaluate the patient in their home prior to surgery to maximize safety and improve outcomes after surgery.

Home Environment

We assess the home environment, order necessary equipment, and review all aspects needed for a safe return home so the patient feels prepared and ready for their upcoming surgery.

Post Surgery

After surgery, we return to the home to start the physical therapy process right away.

Begin Therapy

Starting therapy quickly after surgery maximizes gains in motion and strength and improves overall outcomes.
