Do You Need Post-Operative Rehab in Portage, MI?

Post-Operative Rehab in Portage MI

Surgery is the last choice of treatment methods for many because of the pain and long recovery associated with surgical procedures. However, for many patients, surgery is the only option for having a great quality of life again after an injury or a debilitating condition. If you fall into this category of patients, you should look into post-op rehab with a physical therapist.

Postoperative rehabilitation at Armor Physical Therapy in Portage, MI aims to help patients experience a better quality of life during and after recovery from a life-changing operation. During recovery, you may experience loss of strength and mobility that limits your ability to live an independent life. Your post-op rehab will focus on restoring your independence by:

  • Improving your strength and flexibility
  • Restoring your balance and coordination
  • Helping you walk and lift objects on your own
  • Guiding you toward safely getting dressed, going to the bathroom, eating and more on your own
  • Helping you reduce the pain you experience after surgery
  • Breaking down scar tissue

Your post-op rehab appointment at Armor Physical Therapy in Portage, MI

During your first post-op rehab appointment at Armor Physical Therapy, you’ll meet with your physical therapist who will work with you throughout your recovery.

Each treatment at Armor Physical Therapy is personalized to the needs of the patient, so to develop your treatment, your physical therapist will ask some questions regarding your medical history, age, fitness and recovery goals. Additionally, he or she will examine your strength, balance, coordination, mobility and posture after your surgery to determine the right treatment for you.

Each treatment is unique, but many post-op rehab treatments include:

  • Exercising
  • Stretching
  • Hands-on therapy
  • Icing and heating
  • Ultrasound

Physical therapy can also help you physically prepare before your surgery. If you know in advance that you’re going to have an operation, talk with a physical therapist about your pre-surgical treatment options to help prepare your body for post-op recovery.
