The success of your surgery doesn’t finish the moment you leave the operating theatre and in fact, a successful pre and post surgical physiotherapy not only helps to get you in shape faster but hugely impact your activities of daily living (ADL) and long term health. A comprehensive post surgical (in most Ortho and Neuro Conditions) rehabilitation process is absolute necessary for a accelerated recovery and pain free life
Your surgeon will have skillfully performed a surgical procedure that is the initial step towards your successful outcome. However, you’ll have to do some work in the form of exercises to optimize your results.
In hospital you’ll be provided with simple exercises to minimize complications such as chest infection or DVT’s. You may even be prescribed some early strengthening or range of motion exercises. Once you are discharged, you’ll commonly require re-assessment and checking of your progress.
Post-orthopedic surgery, you’ll almost certainly require exercise progression to fully regain your strength, flexibility and function. The quickest, safest and easiest way to return to your day to day activities is by consulting a physiotherapist experienced in post-operative rehabilitation.
Even if you or your near ones unfortunately sustain a fracture and your doctor decides it to be managed conservatively (non-surgical), still you need extensive and specialized physical therapy after the POP is removed to restore the functions of the limb and regain strength.
At OPTRA Care, we’ll happily assist you in your post-operative care. Our expert physical therapists are well acquainted with the modern, evidence based accelerated protocols for different post surgical rehabilitation.
