Find a Physical Therapist in Walker, MI for Post-Op Rehab

Post-Op Rehab

After a major surgery, one of the challenges that you may face is living out your daily life with the loss of strength, balance, coordination and range of motion. While surgery ultimately aims to help you feel better, you must overcome these challenges as part of a complete recovery. If you have a surgery coming up, you should consider post-op rehab from a physical therapist to help you overcome physical challenges to live independently again.

The Advent Physical Therapy team serves patients in West Michigan from 13 different locations. Our team is skilled and motivated to assist patients like you in the journey toward recovery.

How physical therapy helps you recover after surgery

One of the main objectives of physical therapy is to help patients regain strength and flexibility. This should help your muscles and ligaments support your body while it heals and can also help in managing pain. Depending on your type of surgery and your individual needs, your recovery goals may include:

  • Building strength
  • Improving flexibility and balance
  • Preventing the buildup of scar tissue
  • Managing pain
  • Independently performing daily tasks like walking or getting dressed
