Why surgery patients in Ada, Michigan need pre-surgical rehab

Pre-Surgical Rehab

Every day, millions of people across the world suffer from some form of pain or injury. Many times, pain and injuries can be treated with medicine and physical therapy, but sometimes, surgery is the only option for treatment.

Most people try to avoid surgery because it can be expensive, has a lot of risks and requires a long time for recovery. However, with pre-surgical rehab from Advent Physical Therapy in Ada, Michigan, you can reduce the pain you have after surgery and cut down your recovery time.

What does pre-surgical rehab do for you?

While recovering from surgery, you may be in a lot of pain and find it difficult to accomplish many tasks. Pre-surgical rehab can assist you with techniques that strengthen and stretch the muscles, ligaments and tendons to help:

  • Reduce pain — Exercising and stretching your body helps provide support to reduce pressure from the areas affected most by surgery. This also helps improve your blood flow, which delivers nutrients and oxygen to the areas in need to help reduce pain and improve recovery.
  • Restore independence — While recovering from surgery, you may find it difficult to walk around or accomplish other tasks without assistance from others. Pre-surgical rehab can help prepare your body for recovery so you can more quickly resume talking and other functions after surgery.
  • Improve recovery — Pre-surgical rehab helps improve your recovery time so you can check out of the hospital faster than you would be able to without pre-surgical rehab.

If you schedule a physical therapy appointment for pre-surgical rehab, you should also ask about post-surgical rehab. Together, pre-surgical rehab and post-surgical rehab can help you prepare for surgery and recovery fast and in good shape. Treatments often include:

  • Hands-on therapy
  • Massage
  • Stretches and exercises
  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Ultrasound and more
