How Does Post-Surgical Rehab Benefit You?
Patients who seek physical therapy after an operation recover at a higher rate than those who try to recover without rehabilitation. Physical therapy promotes the healing process, allows for faster recovery, and allows patients to take an active part in their improvement.
Physical therapy helps:
Physical therapy restores your range of motion that you may have lost after surgery.
A surgical procedure may weaken the ligaments around the injury. Rehabilitation can preserve and strengthen the ligaments as they heal.
Surgery can cause your muscles to atrophy and weaken the tissue. Therapy builds your muscles back up and improves stability.
It is crucial that you get up and move around after surgery. Rehabilitation can ease you into proper movement without hurting you.
A healthy PT regiment will help your body retain muscular structure and minimize the scar tissue around the injury.
Working With Your Therapist
We recommend that you consult a physical therapist before you undergo your operation. You can go over the details of your surgery and ask questions about post-surgical rehabilitation. We can discuss your options and talk about what you can expect during your therapy session.
We will also be able to help you with the following tips or information:
- Safety in your home
- Returning to work
- Driving your car
- Special equipment you may want to use
- Techniques for getting in and out of bed
- Climbing stairs
- Exercises or activities you can engage in at home
Our physical therapist, Crystal Luxmore, may coordinate with other specialists such as your physician, an occupational therapist, dietitian, or nurse to ensure that you are receiving the right therapy for your particular condition.
Working with a physical therapist, however, means that you will undergo rehabilitation that is different from other types of treatment. Therefore, our approach is unique and helps you regain your mobility, range of motion, physical strength, and agility in ways that no other medical care can provide.
What Can You Expect During Your Visits?
The first session will include a comprehensive assessment of your problem. We will discuss your medical history, how you were injured, and what you can expect during each visit. We will also discuss your options for rehabilitation.
We will perform a physical examination that may include a range of motion, strength testing, balance assessment, neurological screening, or any other tests that help us determine a safe and effective treatment plan that provides a long-term recovery.
Your therapy will include therapeutic exercises, home exercises, manual therapy, balance training, pain modalities, and other intervention that targets your injuries while improving your strength and mobility.
