Personalized post-surgery rehab in El Paso, TX

Post-surgical Rehab

Many patients view surgery as the solution to their chronic condition or injury to regain their quality of life. But it is often the work put in during post-surgical rehab that can have the biggest impact on your recovery. Every patient and surgery is different, so you should expect that your physical therapy should be tailored to your needs. The Remcon office of Border Therapy Services in El Paso, Texas provides personalized post-surgery rehab treatment plans to meet your rehabilitative needs.

Advantages of post-surgical rehab

After going under the knife, your first inclination may be to take it easy and rest. However, the more quickly you can get up and moving the better. For example, after knee replacement surgery, the doctor may have the patient take their first steps after waking up from anesthesia. The benefits of post-surgical rehab are numerous including:

  • Reducing patient recovery times
  • Stabilizing and strengthening muscles in the area that was operated on
  • Learning modifications to complete daily tasks like bathing or getting into a car
  • Reducing symptoms of pain and inflammation
  • Increasing range of motion and flexibility

While you want to be medically cleared for physical therapy after surgery, it is important to begin rehabilitation as soon as possible so that you can take advantage of these benefits.
