Post Surgery Treatment
After surgery, a personalized rehabilitation program is essential for two reasons. First, it addresses the immediate after-effects of surgery. These include soft-tissue scarring and adhesions, as well as pain and inflammation which often lead to muscle weakness and joint stiffness. Gentle manual therapy and targeted exercise prevent scarring, ease pain, strengthen muscles, relieve joint stiffness, and restore range of motion. As a result, your recovery progresses much faster.
Second, while surgery repairs a structural problem, physical therapy addresses the underlying factors that caused the problem in the first place. Common contributing factors include muscle imbalance, posture issues, and lack of core stability, among others. A personalized program of hands-on therapy and exercise helps resolve these factors so the structural problem doesn’t recur. This protects the surgeon’s work and promotes a longer lasting recovery.
