With post-surgical rehabilitation, you’ll recover more quickly from surgery.
Get back to your normal routine as soon as possible!
Are you concerned about how quickly you’ll recover from your surgery? You’re right, of course! When you’re getting ready for surgery, it’s normal to be anxious about how quickly you’ll be able to resume your favorite activities.
A pre-surgical plan for holistic physical therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy can help alleviate some of your anxiety. Your surgery is coming up, and you’re worried. Let the experts at NORTHSTAR INTEGRATED HEALTH & PHYSICAL MEDICINE CENTER assist you!
Our in-clinic physiotherapists, chiropractors, and massage therapists in the United States are available to help you with any of your health-related concerns using holistic practices to improve your health. To help you get back to your life as quickly as possible, they will design a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs!
What can I expect from a rehabilitation program after surgery?
Even if your doctor suggests pain medications, holistic physical therapy has been shown to be an effective alternative. Physical therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy treat the underlying cause of the pain rather than masking it. Pain-relieving techniques like acupuncture or electrical stimulation, manual therapy, and therapeutic exercises help achieve this goal. Our top priority is getting you back to full health.
After your holistic therapy and post-surgical rehab treatment are complete, we want to make sure that you continue to live a healthy lifestyle. In other words, we’ll talk about any dietary or lifestyle changes you can make to improve your long-term health, prevent further injury, and keep you from having to undergo additional surgery in the future.
Patients may experience physical limitations in the days and weeks that follow a surgical procedure. Using crutches to get up and down stairs, putting on clothes, or getting in and out of a car are just a few of the many options our therapists can suggest. When a person’s range of motion is restricted, adaptive tools can be used to make up for it. Adjustments like this will allow you to move around more comfortably while also helping to restore your body’s natural range of motion and strength.
After surgery, what can I expect to gain?
In order to have a successful surgical outcome, both pre and post-surgical rehabilitation are necessary. Surgery of any kind is a form of trauma that can have varying effects on the body. Even the simplest of surgical procedures can have a profound effect on your overall health and well-being. That’s why pre and post-surgical rehabilitation, together with holistic care with our therapists, is so critical.
At Northstar Integrated Health & Physical Medicine Center, we specialize in post-surgical rehab that is tailored to each patient’s unique needs. This will help you feel better faster and reduce the risk of complications like infection, bleeding, blood clots, muscle weakness. Another significant benefit of post-surgical rehabilitation is its capacity to help you lessen or completely eliminate prescription medicines, especially opioids.
Opioid abuse is sweeping the country, affecting people from all walks of life. According to the CDC, a staggering 115 people die every day from opioid overdoses, and up to 29% of those who are prescribed opioids will abuse them. In light of this, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people avoid prescription painkillers whenever possible.
