Post-Operative Rehabilitation

Maximize your recovery with post-operative physical therapy! If your doctor recommends physical therapy after surgery or you're concerned about your healing, please reach out to Flow Physical Therapy today. 

Post-Operative Physical Therapy Benefits

Physical therapy is essential to recovery after surgery and is an ideal way to help your body heal. After a major surgery, a post-operative therapy program will help to restore strength, movement, and flexibility to the area. The time directly after surgery marks the beginning of the healing process, and your body needs to heal correctly and entirely for the best results of an operation. 

The benefits of post-op physical therapy include: 

  • Quicker recovery

  • Restored strength

  • Minimized scar tissue

  • Reduced pain

  • Regained range of motion

  • Improved flexibility

Along with working to heal a particular area after surgery, keeping your body moving is essential to maintain your overall health. Physical therapy offers a safe environment to keep you moving with the help of our trained professionals.

What to Expect From Post-Op Physical Therapy

Many doctors recommend starting physical therapy immediately after surgery. At Flow Physical Therapy, we tailor treatment to each patient to improve recovery and ensure long-term success.

 

Post-op physical therapy often begins with simple exercises and moves to more intense movements as you recover.

What Happens if I Skip Physical Therapy after Surgery?

Some might think that they will recover just fine if they let healing run its course after surgery. However, the truth is that if you don't complete physical therapy post-surgery, you're risking potential complications, including: 

  • Extending your recovery time

  • Re-occurring injury 

  • Mobility and flexibility issues  

  • Better, but not great results

  • Extended pain or discomfort
