Surgery Rehabilitation Q & A

How does physical therapy help with surgery rehabilitation?

After orthopedic surgery to correct a musculoskeletal problem from an existing condition or injury, surgery rehabilitation is essential in helping you return to your full capacity of physical function. This means returning to work, participating in physical activities you enjoy, or playing competitive sports.

At All Sports Physical therapy, the team of expertly trained doctors and physical therapists tailor a surgery rehabilitation plan to help you meet your specific recovery goals.

After surgery, you may need to rebuild strength, flexibility, and mobility in the treated area, such as your shoulder, knee, or hip. The team works with you through your customized physical therapy plan, to improve blood flow to the area of the incision and surgical repair.

Physical therapy and exercises that are specific to your condition or injury help:

  • Improve athletic performance
  • Manage pain
  • Prevent injury of weak areas
  • Promote a full recovery from surgery

Your surgery rehabilitation therapist recommends a series of exercises and stretches tailored to your individual needs so you improve over time, building your endurance and strength as you recover. Often your exercises focus on a comprehensive plan to:

  • Improve flexibility and balance
  • Correct posture and alignment
  • Strengthen key muscles
  • Massage soft tissue

The team at All Sports Physical Therapy customizes your treatment plan using manual therapy, traction, and guided exercises. Your physical therapist is with you every step of the way to assist you and ensure your safety as part of your surgery rehabilitation in NYC and the surrounding areas.

What manual therapies do you provide for surgery rehabilitation?

Manual therapy methods such as massage, myofascial release, and mobilization, allow your therapist to apply pressure to soft tissues, such as muscles. This helps to release knots, improve circulation, and relieve pain. Manual therapies also help increase mobilization with slow movements that realign your joints and bones into their proper position.

As your joints reposition into correct alignment, it helps relieve muscle tension and pain, as well. During manual therapy, your physical therapists perform a series of movements to stretch specific parts of your body while you relax and allow your therapist to gently work your muscles for you.

How long does surgery rehabilitation take?

Everyone is different and recovers at their own pace. The team at All Sports Physical Therapy is there to assist you and support your personal journey to recovery. They work with you to facilitate your full recovery after surgery as quickly and as effectively as possible so you can get back to participating in the activities you enjoy while minimizing your risk of injury.
