Post-Surgical Rehab.

What is Post-Surgical Rehab?

Rehabilitation is the process of regaining joint motion, muscular strength around the joint, and finally joint function following surgery.

Post-Surgical Rehab.

Rehabilitation after surgery is essential for regaining pain-free function and returning to regular activities safely and swiftly. Patients are gently eased back into everyday activities and regular exercise with post-operative physical therapy. Our physical therapists do a full post-surgery evaluation and establish a personalised therapy plan to reduce surgery-related side effects and restore normal movement, flexibility, and function. Post-operative rehabilitation assists patients in managing post-operative pain, regaining flexibility and strength, reducing discomfort, stiffness, and swelling, and returning to everyday activities more rapidly. Physical therapy should be started as soon as possible following surgery to ensure that the joint heals properly and scar tissue does not develop. Following surgery, physical therapy will help you recover faster.

How it works?

A physiotherapist will show you how to get into and out of a chair, use assistive devices, and enhance your mobility after surgery. Your physiotherapist will teach you pain management techniques and design an exercise programme to help you recover more quickly. Physical therapy after surgery can be an important aspect of resuming daily activities.

Pain and inflammation are two common side effects after surgery that can be reduced with the help of a qualified therapist. Before and after ligament repairs, arthroscopy, decompressions, tendon transfers, total joint replacements, and ACL repairs, we are delighted to serve patients. Our programmes can help you attain complete range of motion and reduce the risk of problems.

Benefits :

Regain Lost Strength :The faster you regain strength and stamina, the sooner you can resume your normal schedule. After surgery, a physiotherapy programme can be tailored to target the precise regions of your body that require strengthening..

Reduce Pain and Swelling: The appropriate form of post-surgical care will help you feel less discomfort and oedema following your procedure. A physiotherapist may employ both icing and ultrasound to relieve localised oedema and pain. Patients who got same-day post-operative physiotherapy required less painkillers following knee surgery, according to PT in Motion News.

Improve Circulation: Improved circulation not only speeds up recovery, but it also lowers the risk of a blood clot forming. Massage, for example, can help to increase circulation. A physiotherapist can prescribe a variety of basic exercises and simple movements to help improve blood circulation.
