Preparatory Care and Post-Op Physical Therapy Available for Surgical Patients At Doctors Care Pain and Wellness Center of Linden

We understand that any surgical procedure, no matter how routine, can be a stressful experience. It’s natural to worry about preparing for surgery as well as wondering how quickly your body will recover and regain the ability to perform normal activities. At Doctors Care Pain and Wellness Center of Linden we have more than 20 years of experience treating post-operative spine patients, hip replacements, knee replacements and shoulder surgeries. Whether you have had a lumbar fusion, a microdiscectomy or rotator cuff repair our physical therapy plans helps with all aspects of preparation (before surgery) and rehabilitation (after surgery). We also offer natural pain management solutions and nutritional support options to help you heal faster and get back to living an active life.

Pre-Operative Care Addresses Preliminary Concerns: Our goal is to prepare you for a fast recovery. Pre-operative care will strengthen supporting structures and establish a baseline allowing our clinician to design the most effective treatment plan for you to heal quickly after your surgery. We also consult with our patients to cover the benefits of the procedure, the risks involved and the approximate recovery time expected. It’s important for patients to know all of this up front before undergoing any procedures.

Post-Operative Physical Therapy Addresses Recovery: Post-op physical therapy at Doctors Care Pain and Wellness center of Linden includes both pain management and mobility exercises for patients recovering. It is natural to experience swelling and inflammation at the operation’s site. Physiotherapy treatments, including cold compression therapy and laser therapy, are an effective way to reduce this inflammation. Controlling inflammation and swelling helps to manage pain and reduce a patient’s need for medication. Our physiotherapy treatments also increase circulation, bring fresh, oxygen-rich blood to the soft tissues. Increased circulation helps to flush out waste and support the body’s internal healing process.

After surgery, you will need to initially rest your body. However, prolonged rest leads to muscle degradation and weakness, which can make movement more difficult and may increase pain. Physiotherapy exercises strengthen the muscles to increase mobility. We will assist you with basic weight training to improve muscle condition and prevent atrophy. Rehabilitative care exercises are also beneficial for restoring a full range of mobility to the body, improving flexibility and enhancing balance. In fact, many patients find that our exercise program helps them ultimately be more active after surgery than they were before their operation. Our goal is to help you recover as quickly and safely as possible.
