Physical therapy is invaluable in helping patients recover their mobility and strength, and alleviate pain while rehabbing from surgery or a musculoskeletal injury. Physical therapists will help your body to re-learn to move correctly, within its proper healthy range of motion, and strengthen muscles around the injured or weakened joint or muscle, helping reduce the strain on the injured part and hastening healing.
How Orthopedic Physical Therapy Works
After surgery or an injury, your joint needs to recover its flexibility, mobility, and strength. There are many different techniques used by physical therapists to help you rehab from surgery or injury as quickly as possible. An important step in the healing process is to get moving again as soon as possible.
A combination of exercise and manual therapy, as well as other rehabilitation techniques, can help you recover more quickly following surgery or an injury.
