Understanding the Importance of Post-Surgery Rehabilitation

Reducing Pain and Swelling

Post-surgery, pain and swelling are common. Physical therapy techniques, including manual therapy and targeted exercises, help manage pain and reduce swelling, promoting a more comfortable recovery process.

Restoring Range of Motion

Surgery can temporarily limit joint movement. Physical therapists at SOPTRI employ specialized exercises to gradually restore range of motion, ensuring optimal joint function.

Rebuilding Strength

Muscular atrophy often occurs after surgery due to reduced physical activity. SOPTRI’s physical therapy programs are designed to rebuild strength, enhancing overall muscle function and preventing complications.

Improving Stability and Balance

Many surgical procedures can affect stability and balance. Physical therapy interventions focus on exercises that enhance stability, improve balance, and reduce the risk of falls during the recovery phase.

Preventing Scar Tissue Formation

Physical therapists use hands-on techniques to prevent the development of excessive scar tissue. This helps maintain flexibility and prevent restrictions in the surgical area.

Facilitating Faster Recovery

SOPTRI’s physical therapists work closely with patients to develop individualized rehabilitation plans, aiming to expedite the recovery process and promote a quicker return to daily activities.
