Post Surgery Rehabilitation Q&A

What is post-surgery rehabilitation?

Post-surgery rehabilitation combines at-home stretches and exercise, physical therapy, and hands-on treatments, like chiropractic care and massage therapy, to encourage recovery following a surgical procedure.

After surgery, many people experience pain, stiffness, and a loss of mobility. Post-surgery rehabilitation uses custom treatment plans to minimize the effects of these issues, allowing for quicker results and improved outcomes.

What are the benefits of post-surgery rehabilitation?

At Core Rehab LLC, the providers use post-surgery rehabilitation to:

  • Reduce pain
  • Strengthen your muscles
  • Improve your mobility and range of motion
  • Enhance your ability to do daily activities like bathing, walking, and preparing meals

Post-surgery rehabilitation also minimizes the risk of future complications. When you commit to treatment, you’re less likely to experience additional setbacks.

What services does post-surgery rehabilitation include?

Core Rehab LLC offers several types of post-surgery rehabilitation, including:

Physical therapy

Physical therapy uses stretches, exercises, and hands-on therapies to relieve pain, improve circulation, and encourage your body’s healing process. It’s tailored to your age, fitness level, and medical history, ensuring positive, lasting outcomes.

Physical therapy is a critical component of the recovery process following spine surgery or joint replacement. Attend each of your scheduled appointments and carefully follow your provider’s instructions. 

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care involves the hands-on manipulation of your vertebrae and soft tissues. It helps to align your spine, minimizing the risk of musculoskeletal discomfort. Chiropractic care is completely noninvasive and considered safe for people of all ages, including children.

Chiropractic care isn’t always a good idea immediately following surgery. Core Rehab LLC recommends when your body has healed enough to begin chiropractic care. 

Massage therapy

Massage therapy uses the hands, arms, and elbows to perform techniques like kneading, squeezing, and chopping. These techniques manipulate your skin, muscles, and soft tissues, improving your circulation while eliminating musculoskeletal pain.

What type of post-surgery rehabilitation might benefit me?

The type of post-surgery rehabilitation that benefits you depends on your age, medical history, and the type of operation you underwent. Following a physical exam and a discussion of your symptoms, your Core Rehab LLC provider can design a custom care plan that aligns with your needs.
