Why You Need Physical Therapy After Your Surgery in Grand Rapids, MI

Physical Therapy After Surgery

Many people today choose to have surgery to help improve their lives. Whether as an elective procedure or a physician-ordered procedure, surgery can be tough on your body. Seeking post-surgery rehab will help you face challenges such as loss of strength or coordination that can occur after life-altering surgeries.

At Advent Physical Therapy, we have been serving patients in West Michigan for more than 19 years. We use the latest technologies and techniques for developing personalized treatments that assist patients in recovery after surgery.

What should you expect from post-surgery rehabilitation?

The general goal of physical therapy is to restore the strength and flexibility of muscles and ligaments. This stays true for post-surgical recovery. However, depending on the nature of your surgery, you may need assistance from a physical therapist with the following:

  • Building strength
  • Improving flexibility and balance
  • Preventing the buildup of scar tissue
  • Aiding in pain management

Additionally, physical therapy can help you with specific tasks, such as walking, getting dressed or bathing on your own. Functions like these that were once simple before surgery can be challenging afterward without any guidance.

How Advent Physical Therapy provides rehabilitative services

The team at Advent Physical Therapy is passionate and motivated to work with patients in their post-surgery rehabilitation. We believe each patient is a unique individual, so we develop personalized treatments to meet your specific recovery needs and goals.

Your exact treatment depends on the type of surgery you have and other factors, such as age, medical history and overall health and wellbeing. It’s likely your post-surgery rehab will 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
