Post Surgical Care & How We Help You:
For many illnesses and injuries, surgery is often a necessary solution and, depending on the severity of the illness or injury in question, is almost always nerve-wracking. But physical therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic care can help the recovery and healing process after a major surgery. This is known as postoperative, or post-surgery, recovery or rehabilitation.
With the help of a physical therapist, acupuncturist and chiropractor, you’ll learn the best and safest way to walk, bathe, get dressed, and take care of yourself. And you’ll get exercises and treatment to make your muscles stronger and help you improve the way you move the part of your body where you had your surgery.
A Multidisciplinary Approach:
Health and Fitness Professionals can provide comprehensive post-operative care by utilizing the expertise of different healthcare professionals. Some benefits of a multi-disciplinary healthcare clinic for post-operative care include:
