Physical Therapist for Post-Op Rehab in Kentwood

People choose to undergo surgeries to help treat an injury or physical condition that is negatively impacting their lives. However, after the surgery is over, patients still have challenges to face like recovering strength and flexibility. If you’re about to have surgery, you should look into post-op rehab from a physical therapist near you.

Advent Physical Therapy provides post-op rehabilitative assistance to patients in West Michigan from 13 different locations. Our team is passionate about helping patients like you recover after an operation to live independently again.

What you need to know about post-op rehab

The main goal of post-op rehab, as with all forms of physical therapy, is to strengthen and stretch the muscles and ligaments around the tender area of your body. Depending on the type of surgery, your recovery goals may include:

  • Developing strength and flexibility
  • Restoring your range of motion
  • Improving your balance and coordination
  • Breaking down scar tissue
  • Managing pain

Your physical therapist can also provide guidance to help you safely accomplish simple tasks like walking or getting dressed on your own. These kinds of tasks are more difficult after surgery due to pain, loss of strength and loss of motion.

What to expect from post-op rehab at Advent Physical Therapy

At Advent Physical Therapy we treat each patient as a unique individual. Your recovery goals depend on your type of surgery and other factors like your age, fitness, medical history and current wellbeing.

Your physical therapist will work closely with you to develop a personalized post-op recovery plan based on these factors. Many post-op treatments make use of the following:

  • Exercises and stretches to strengthen the muscles
  • Cold and hot treatments to help manage your pain
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Manual therapy
