"The difference between the possible and the impossible lies in a persons determination."
Three to nine months of rehabilitative physical therapy is standard after hip, knee, or ankle surgery. For athletes and active professionals who want to reclaim a higher level of physical performance following surgery, Summit Orthopedics developed the ASCEND program.
The Summit Orthopedics ASCEND program provides the extra training and conditioning athletes need to regain competitive strength and get back in the game after an injury. Two ASCEND physical therapists explain why the program was developed.
Summit’s ASCEND Return to Sport program is focused on safely returning injured athletes to a high level of competitive performance while teaching them how to prevent reinjury.
