Why You Should Seek Post-Op Rehab in Grand Rapids, MI

Why You Should Seek Post-Op Rehab in Grand Rapids

The goal of surgery is to help correct an injury or condition that is negatively impacting your quality of life. In many cases, surgery is the last resort for treatment because it takes a big physical toll on your body. However, if nonsurgical treatments aren’t working, surgery may be your only choice. If you’re facing an upcoming surgery, you should be thinking about post-op rehab.

Post-op rehab from a physical therapist can help you recover strength and coordination that may be lost after surgery. At Advent Physical Therapy, our team has more than 19 years of experience in assisting patients in the West Michigan area with treatments like post-op rehab.

If you’re having an operation soon, you should consider talking with one of our team members about your recovery options.

What to expect from post-surgery rehabilitation

Typically, the goal of physical therapy is to strengthen and stretch your muscles and ligaments to help manage pain and support your body while you recover. Depending on your operation, the goal of your post-surgery rehab may include:

  • Developing your flexibility and coordination
  • Rebuilding your strength
  • Breaking down scar tissue
  • Assisting in pain management
  • Providing guidance for walking safely and performing other tasks on your own, such as going to the bathroom or getting dressed
