How Can Physiotherapy Help After Joint Surgery? Post-Surgical Rehabilitation in Surrey
After your joint surgery, you’ll find the physiotherapists at Amari Physiotherapy & Massage in Surrey offer a supportive, healing environment. We focus on helping you regain your highest possible functional level. Our patients find physiotherapy helps in many areas, such as:
Pain Management – Your physiotherapist will implement your custom treatment plan with soft tissue techniques, gentle joint mobilizations, and other therapy aids to help you manage your pain.
Avoids Muscle Wastage – Specially designed exercise routines reduce the risk of muscle wastage. This starts early and moves through a series of exercises that change as you progress. The more muscle wastage you can avoid, the faster your recovery time.
Reduces Formation of Scar Tissue – Scar tissue can reduce your range of motion and cause pain. Physiotherapy techniques can reduce scar tissue formation and help desensitize affected nerves.
Improves Functional Ability – A physiotherapy rehabilitation program helps restore and improve your functional ability. Most often, your physiotherapist will recommend a combination of modalities to improve your function in a graduated way without aggravating your condition.
Increases Joint Stability – Physiotherapy can help regain joint stability with neuromuscular training and specific exercises.
Education – Education is a big part of physiotherapy. Your physiotherapist will provide you with post-surgery information on how to manage your recovery. They will help you with issues like:
- Understanding your surgery. What is the normal healing process? What are typical recovery times?
- Modifications to activities of daily living
- Possible complications after surgery
- Effective pain and recovery management strategies
- How to use mobility aids like crutches, canes, or walkers
