WHAT IS POST SURGICAL PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Post-surgical physiotherapy, also known as post-operative physiotherapy, is a specialized branch of physiotherapy that focuses on the rehabilitation and recovery of patients after surgery. Post-surgical physiotherapy aims to restore mobility, strength, and function to patients who have undergone surgery, reduce pain, and minimize the risk of complications.
Post-surgical physiotherapy is unique in that it requires a deep understanding of the surgical procedure, its potential complications, and the unique needs of each patient. Post-surgical physiotherapists work closely with the patient's surgeon to develop a customized rehabilitation plan that is tailored to the patient's specific surgical procedure and individual needs.
Post-surgical physiotherapists use a variety of techniques and modalities to aid in the patient's recovery. These include manual therapy, exercise prescription, modalities such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, or ice therapy, and patient education on proper movement and body mechanics.
Post-surgical physiotherapists work with patients who have undergone a wide range of surgical procedures, including joint replacements, spinal surgery, orthopedic surgery, and other procedures. Patients may require post-surgical physiotherapy for various reasons, including to restore function and mobility, reduce pain, improve strength and endurance, and prevent complications such as blood clots or pneumonia.
Overall, post-surgical physiotherapy is a crucial aspect of the patient's recovery process, and post-surgical physiotherapists play a vital role in helping patients achieve their rehabilitation goals and return to their daily activities.
