Rehabilitative Physical Therapy Following Surgery

Many surgeons will refer patients to a physical therapist following a procedure. If you are planning to undergo an operation, physical therapy could help aid in a speedier recovery. The body naturally loses strength after going through inactivity following a surgical procedure. A physical therapist will work with you to provide a specific therapy plan of care to help you regain your strength and get you back to what you want to do.

While rest is an important aspect of recovery, early mobility can ease the body back into gaining normal function. The overall goal of rehabilitative physical therapy is to promote the natural healing process of the body after an operation, so you can get back to your normal daily routines and live life comfortably once again.
