What can I expect from a post-surgical rehabilitation plan?
While your physician may recommend pain management drugs, physical therapy, has been known to relieve pain without the need for them. Pain-killing drugs mask the pain while physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy resolve the issue where the pain is originating. This is achieved with specialized manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, pain-relieving modalities like acupuncture or electric stimulation, and finally recovery of functional exercises. Your return to optimal function is our number one priority.
Additionally, we are dedicated to making sure you are living a healthy life, even after your post-surgical rehab treatments are over. So we will discuss any lifestyle and/or nutritional changes you can make in order to optimize your long-term health, avoid injuring yourself and avoid the need for additional surgeries in the future.
The days and weeks following a surgical procedure may result in physical limitations. Our therapists can advise you on additional ways to accommodate these limitations, such as how to go up and down the stairs with crutches, putting on clothes, or getting in and out of a car. This can be done with the assistance of adaptive tools to compensate for reduced movement. By making these adjustments, you will be able to move around comfortably while also working to restore the normal range of movement and strength in your body.
What can I gain from a post-surgical rehab plan?
Both pre- and post-surgical rehab are essential elements of successful surgical outcomes. Any type of surgery can be considered a form of trauma and can affect the body differently. Even minor and uncomplicated surgical procedures can have a major impact on your health. That makes post-surgical rehab with our Oakville, ON therapists especially important, in order to make sure everything goes smoothly after your operation is done.
Individualized post-surgical rehab at Leaps and Bounds: Performance Rehabilitation not only minimizes your pain and accelerates your rate of healing, but it can also reduce the chances of postoperative complications, including infections, bleeding, blood clots, muscle weakness, inhibiting scar tissue, decreased function, and other factors that can negatively impact your long-term health. Another critical reason for selecting post-surgical rehabilitation is its ability to help you reduce or completely avoid prescription painkillers, including opioids.
An opioid epidemic is currently gripping the country and impacting every socioeconomic class. According to the CDC, an estimated 115 people every day die from an opioid overdose, and upwards of 29% of people prescribed opioids will end up misusing these dangerous drugs. For this reason, the CDC advises people to choose physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy over prescription painkillers whenever possible.
