5 Ways Post-Operative Physical Therapy Improves Recovery

Surgery is often just the beginning of a patient 's healing journey. For a full, effective recovery from surgeries like hip, knee, shoulder, hand, wrist neck, spine, ankle or foot, physical therapy, or PT, is often an essential next step. The main goal of post-operative PT is to help regain mobility, and it is typically broken down into separate phases that help a patient return to previous activity levels over time. Here are 5 ways PT helps patients fully heal:
  • Restores strength and flexibility
  • Alleviates pain without medication
  • Improves range of motion and circulation
  • Breaks up scar tissue
  • Boosts core strength and stamina
