Preoperative rehabilitation programs prepare people for surgery and help them recover from injuries more quickly. A preoperative rehabilitation program's goals are to mentally prepare for surgery, reduce pain and inflammation before surgery, maximize the range of motion and muscular control of the injured body part, gait training, educate patients on what to expect after surgery; precautions, and post-surgical exercises, and improve overall well-being and fitness.
Post-surgical rehabilitation plans aim to reduce pain and swelling, restore joint mobility, flexibility, and strength, and ensure the integrity of the surgery. Physiotherapy is typically started immediately after surgery to help patients recover safely and return to daily activities as quickly as possible. Most procedures have a protocol that physiotherapists will guide you through and progress as appropriate. The first phase immediately following surgery concentrates on reducing pain and swelling. In the following stages, treatment focuses on corrective exercise and manual techniques to improve range of motion, strength, and dynamic stability, striving to return to pre-injury function. Your surgeon will advise you when your postoperative rehabilitation program can begin.
Treatment for Pre/Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
Our physiotherapists at Fizo Kare Physiotherapy Centre will customise a preoperative rehabilitation programme that can help you improve your strength, balance, and flexibility before your surgery. Such a program may result in better outcomes after surgery since it can shorten the length of your hospital stay and reduce the need for postoperative rehabilitation. We will focus on several areas, including your strength, balance, flexibility, joint stability, cardiovascular fitness, and range of motion. Most preoperative rehabilitation programs last four to six weeks, depending on your needs.
