Choosing Post-Op Rehab in Ada, Michigan

Choosing Post-Op Rehab

Surgery is a medical procedure that helps many people improve their lives. It is often the last resort if nonsurgical treatments are not effective because of the toll it takes on your body. Ultimately, surgery should help improve your quality of life, but after your operation, you have some challenges to face first.

Surgery can make it difficult to complete tasks that were once simple. Loss of strength, balance and coordination can affect your ability to do things like walking or going to the bathroom on your own. These abilities don’t just magically come back. They require hard work and dedication, but your quality of life is worth it.

If you have a surgery coming up, you should consider working with a physical therapist at Advent Physical Therapy. Our team has been helping patients in West Michigan for more than 19 years with their post-op rehabilitation and other physical rehabilitative needs.

Why you should visit a physical therapist for post-op rehab

As mentioned before, your recovery can be challenging and requires a lot of hard work. Physical therapists are professionals who are skilled in developing treatments to assist in your recovery.

At Advent Physical Therapy, your physical therapist will work with you to help you regain strength and mobility. Depending on the type of surgery, your physical therapist may assist you with the following:

  • Improving your strength, balance and flexibility
  • Working out the buildup of scar tissue
  • Managing your pain

Your physical therapist will also teach you how to navigate your physical challenges, so you can do things like go to the bathroom or walk on your own while recovering.

About Advent Physical Therapy’s post-rehab methods

Our team uses the latest technology and methods as part of your physical therapy treatment. Your physical therapist will work one-on-one with you to develop an individualized recovery plan tailored to your needs and personal goals.

It’s important that you receive personalized attention because you are a unique individual. Factors such as age, medical history and overall health determine the course of your treatment. Because of this, two people who undergo the same procedure may have entirely different treatments.

Typically, post-op rehab treatments include 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
