For many people suffering from hip, knee or shoulder problems, surgery is often just the beginning in their return to normal function. Although many surgeries are successful in repairing or correcting the problem, the resulting pain and inflammation can make it difficult for you to continue with your daily life. Loss of strength and decreased range of movement after surgery may also contribute to long-term discomfort.
Chiropractors are well educated in post-surgical rehabilitation and can also provide treatment protocols to help control your pain and swelling while you regain your strength and flexibility. Our team has experience in Kinesiology and Personal Training to design a specific program of treatment and exercises to help you receive the most from your recovery.
If you are scheduled to have surgery in the near future, feel free to contact us to discuss possible recovery protocols in advance. This allows us to plan ahead for your specific needs and begin your program immediately following your surgery.
Recent research in surgical protocols have emphasized pre-surgery strengthening programs to help prepare the body for upcoming surgery. These pre-surgical programs are very useful in strengthening accessory muscles around the surgical site to aid in quicker recovery following surgery.
If your post-surgical rehabilitation is not progressing as well as you would like, or if you have depleted your physiotherapy coverage, we would be happy to evaluate your situation and offer our help in speeding up your recovery.
