Surgery is a traumatizing event to most. Surgeries can go smoothly or can complicate and the surgical period is therefore very unpredictable. Regardless of the outcome, the post-surgery period is a very delicate moment, and it is normally advised that one takes ample rest.
Disability and diminished function are events that more often than not happen following an operation and to deal with these issues physical therapy is sought. Physical therapy post-surgery has been shown to improve the quality of life since it helps in regaining near total, if not total, body function.
Orthopedic surgeries are some of the operations with a high incidence of need for post-operative rehabilitation. Physical therapy is vital in the post-surgical period because it will reduce the chances of future pain and even injury.
Post-surgical therapy is often divided into different phases the first one being immediately after the surgery. The effects of anesthesia are not fully subsided immediately after surgery leaving the body in an immobile state. Following this, comes a period of exercises targeting motion and strength restoration. The ultimate goal is to restore pre-surgical activity level.
