Here at Physiokinesis we emphasize the importance of physiotherapy both preoperatively and postoperatively.
After an orthopedic surgery, it is essential to start physiotherapy as early as possible, in order to control the inflammatory response and pain, as well as to restore mobility and muscle strength, so that the user can regain his functional independence.
Although the benefits of postoperative physiotherapy in the process of recovery of strength, movement and functionality of the patient's body are indisputable, experience has shown that in most cases, due importance is not given to carrying out a follow-up prior to surgery, which would significantly contribute to speed up the rehabilitative condition.
Physiotherapy has a fundamental role in the prescription of exercises and in carrying out the most convenient treatments to be observed before the patient enters the operating room, in order to undergo the operation in the best possible conditions of mobility, flexibility, strength and blood circulation. The more prepared the body is, the faster the recovery.
In addition to acting on the patient's physical appearance, preoperative physiotherapy also has an instructive function. It is very important to educate the patient, teaching him how to behave after surgery, so as not to compromise the expected results. We teach ways for the patient, in their own home, to identify warning signs and control the pain and the inflammatory process, and also know how to perform the activities of daily living correctly, such as, for example, taking a shower, dressing and walking with Canadian companies, if necessary.
Through the monitoring of our team, with vast experience in the treatment of patients undergoing orthopedic surgery, it will be possible for the patient to enhance the result of their surgery, whether in our clinic or at home.
