Surgery, although necessary to save lives and improve people’s health in some fashion, can be frightening. The thought of yourself being placed under anaesthetics and operated on can be scary. But you can make the fear less severe if you work with a physiotherapist pre-operation; you will have a good plan for your recovery once the operation is done.
After your successful surgery, you will need to make some adjustments, physically and emotionally, to hasten your recovery. Pre-operation physiotherapy can help you get ready for these adjustments. Your physiotherapist can help you prepare to move around the house, ride a car, and possibly return to work. Your therapist will also have a post-operative exercise plan that will not harm your recovery process.
There’s nothing wrong with feeling anxious or fearful that something bad will happen in your surgery. However, you and your healthcare professionals will ensure you are recovering fine. They will make you do the right exercises, in the right way, and at the right time.
These exercise programs will help you maintain your function and strength after the operation.
After surgery and through your recovery process, experienced post-operation physiotherapists will assess your function, mobility, and function. According to the different phases of healing and your progress and goals, a physiotherapist will prepare a rehabilitation exercise program for you.
At Mission Walk Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Centre, we offer a range of therapeutic procedures to help patients in their surgery rehabilitation. We will care for you from your healing period to your return to normal physical activities and sports. From our physiotherapists, you will get:
- advice and support through the various stages of your recovery
- management of pain, swelling, and scarring
- help in mobility, strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination
- ability to return to daily activities and independence
- prevention of complications
- relief from cough and breathing problems
- improve posture
Physiotherapy for surgery rehabilitation should begin immediately, possibly while you’re in the hospital. It should be continued after you’ve been discharged; for you to achieve the best recovery possible. You will be encouraged to carry out a range of exercises to mobilise and strengthen the joints and muscles affected by the operation. Physiotherapy will also help heal your respiratory and circulatory tissues that may have developed in the hospital.
Physiotherapists at Mission Walk have tools and techniques at their disposal. They are explicitly trained in the best ways to help you recover from surgery. You may do a 10-mile round on the treadmill or light exercises that reduce strain on your muscles. Your therapist can do many things to help you at home to contract your muscles from the operation. You will rebuild your strength gradually without putting you at risk of tearing any suture or having yourself reinjured.
