Physical Therapist for Post-Op Rehab in Rockford

When suffering from an injury or a physical condition, many physicians try to provide nonsurgical treatments, but sometimes surgery is the best choice for optimal recovery. Surgery does come with its own challenges, though. If you have an upcoming surgery, you should consider visiting a physical therapist for post-op rehabilitation to help you face and overcome these challenges.

Advent Physical Therapy is in Rockford, MI, and 12 other locations in West Michigan. Our staff is passionate about helping patients like you recover after surgery to live a better quality of life.

Our team can help you regain your strength and mobility with a personalized treatment that makes use of the latest methods and technology.

What is post-op rehabilitation?

Post-op rehab is a physical therapy service that focuses on rebuilding your strength and flexibility to help you regain your independence during recovery from a surgery. Post-op rehab looks different for each patient because each patient’s goals are different. However, you can generally expect post-op rehab to help assist with the following:

  • Helping you manage pain
  • Restoring strength and flexibility
  • Restoring range of motion
  • Developing balance and coordination
  • Breaking down scar tissue

Your physical therapist can also provide guidance to help you complete daily tasks after your operation. Surgery can make it difficult to do things like walking or getting dressed, but post-op rehab can assist you in developing the ability to safely complete these tasks on your own.

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

At Advent Physical Therapy in Rockford, MI, you can expect quality personal care and treatment. Our physical therapists understand that each patient is a unique individual and our services reflect that.

One of our team members will personally work with you to discuss your recovery goals and develop a treatment based on factors like your type of surgery, your medical history, age and levels of fitness.

Because each treatment is unique, two patients who are undergoing the same surgery may receive completely different post-op rehab recovery plans. However, you can generally expect your post-op rehab to include some of the following:

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