Patient Rehabilitation Protocols After Sports Injury
Physical therapy is one of the most important steps to recovery post-surgery for patients of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The following protocols are intended to guide a patient's physical therapist in creating a week-by-week plan to lead to a successful recovery. These protocols were created by Orthopaedic Sports Medicine physicians, Stephen Gryzlo, MD, Michael Terry, MD and Vehniah Tjong, MD.
These protocols are intended solely for patients under the guidance and supervision of their physicians.
