Boost Surgery Results with Pre-and Post-Surgical Rehab
Many doctors are starting to see the benefits of choosing pre-surgical rehabilitation for patients who are planning to undergo surgery. These preparations are just as important as recovery rehabilitation. Increasing the flexibility of the tissue and tendons for surgery will allow the surgeon a better case scenario during the operation. Also, you can expect stronger results from your body as it starts to heal.
Pre-Game for Your Surgery
Strengthening this area before having surgery is also essential for pre-surgical rehabilitation. Minimizing inflammation in the area through aquatic therapy or physical therapy will strengthen these joints and improve the strength in tendons.
By building this strength and flexibility before surgery, the amount of time in post-surgical rehabilitation is reduced since the healing process will generate faster. Having a reduced post-surgery rehab treatment allows you to get back to your daily life and obligations much more quickly.
Get Your Post-Surgical Rehabilitation Reps in With Physical Therapy
Getting those discharge papers following your surgery is a sign that post-surgical rehabilitation is starting soon. The quicker this treatment begins, the faster your body will heal and you can regain full use of the operated area.
Post-surgical rehabilitation should begin immediately and is customized to fit your needs for the operated area. Attempting to delay this process will only cause it to last longer and become more painful in the beginning.
Reduce Pain and Get The Gains
The goal of the surgery is to correct the damage done to an area in your body. Surgeries such as knee replacement surgery focus on regaining the use of that knee, increasing the range of motion and flexibility so that you are not limited moving forward. Making a habitual use of this area will reduce pain and inflammation build-up that builds following a surgical procedure.
