Understanding Post Surgery Rehabilitation
For patients undergoing orthopaedic and general surgery the post-operative physiotherapy rehabilitation program must follow the protocol that will be critical to the result that they achieve.
Your Physiotherapist should be familiar with this protocol and be able to adjust your program based on your specific circumstances.
Post-operative Physiotherapy Occurs in Three Phases
Early Recovery Phase
This phase begins as soon as you are discharged from surgery and carries on until your tissues have healed, the swelling from surgery has dissipated and the pain associated with the surgery has mostly resolved. During this period of time your Physiotherapist will be focused on the following
- Pain relief
- Reducing swelling
- Gentle manual therapy to restore joint range of motion
- Assistance with early walking
- Simple exercises to begin to regain muscle function without disrupting healing
Strength and Range of Motion Phase
Once the post-op pain and swelling have reduced your physiotherapy program will become focused on normalizing the range of motion, mechanics and strength of your body. During this time, your post-op physiotherapy program will likely include:
- More difficult strength exercises
- The introduction of some balance and proprioception tasks
- More aggressive manual therapy to restore full joint range of motion
- Soft tissue treatment to ensure you regain full mobility
Functional Restoration Phase
When your surgical site is ready and your strength has returned sufficiently to do more complex exercises safely you will move into the functional restoration phase of your post-op physiotherapy program. During this period of time you may be doing some of the following:
- A progression of exercises designed to meet a complex functional goal
- More difficult and complex balance and proprioception exercises
- Manual therapy to restore full joint range of motion (if not already achieved)
