Postoperative Physiotherapy

Postoperative Physical Therapy

Postoperative rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions is an important and specialized treatment, where the physiotherapist must have complete knowledge of the patient’s condition and pathology. It has its own qualitative characteristics and differs from a simple musculoskeletal problem due to degenerative or traumatic etiologies.

In almost all surgical interventions, postoperative physiotherapy is a key stage for the complete and smooth recovery of the patient, having a key role in improving the functionality of the member where the operation was performed.

  • Direct and systematic information with the attending physician helps us to lead the patient "gradually and safely" to a complete recovery. The physiotherapeutic rehabilitation strategy usually begins within the first postoperative days.
  • Depending on the severity of the surgery, the restrictions placed are being considered and the strategy of the treatment plan, always in consultation with the Attending Physician. In this way, rehabilitation is adjusted based on the patient's data, and the program becomes completely safe.
  • However, the postoperative period is a period when the patient needs close monitoring and guidance. Every new pain inspires uneasiness, and every new activity is done with reserve. It is natural that the patient wants to return to his daily habits, but without risking the benefits of the operation he did. The balance between these opposing forces is key. Both "too fast steps", and" excessive fear", are obstacles to the normal recovery of the patient.

From the Simplest to the most Complex Conditions

 The success of a surgery is completed by the confidence you will gain in your body and its capabilities. Postoperative physical therapy is a creative process, where you will be taught the proper functioning of your body and how to gradually increase its capabilities through exercise.  

Strengthening and Stabilization

During the physiotherapeutic intervention, strengthening and stabilization exercises are given, which are necessary to maintain the results of physiotherapy. In addition, upon completion of the physiotherapy treatment, the patient is given a full muscle strengthening program and is trained in the correct execution of the specific exercises, in order to keep his body as healthy as possible after any surgery. This reduces the chances of recurrence of the condition or the appearance of another musculoskeletal problem.

Physical therapy in the pre and postoperative condition is a process that starts at the beginning of the problem , prepares the patient for the operation , works closely with the attending physician and plans the rehabilitation program for the return of the patient to everyday life.

Physical therapy is an integral part of postoperative rehabilitation and is a key factor in the success of a surgery

Throughout the rehabilitation the role and guidance of the physiotherapist plays a catalytic role in a successful therapeutic result.

The road to postoperative rehabilitation often has difficult phases and obstacles. The patient should at all times be properly informed and accept the support of the therapist

Patience, consistency and undivided cooperation of the patient with the therapist are considered necessary conditions for achieving the ultimate goal.

Second Stage

After the completion of the first stage of physiotherapeutic intervention, the patient passes to the second stage, where the rehabilitation department is located. At this stage the patient will follow a personalized exercise program with the guidance of the physiotherapist.
