Frequently Asked Questions About Post-Surgery Rehab

What is post-operative rehabilitation?

Post-operative rehabilitation is used to help the body recover after surgery. It involves re-establishing full motion in the joints, strengthening the muscles, and relieving discomfort to allow you to return to your normal daily activities.

When should you start post-surgery rehab?

Your surgeon will recommend a timeline for your post-surgery rehab, but many recommend beginning very soon after your surgery. Most programs begin with simple, gentle exercises to restore movement.

How long is rehab after surgery?

The amount of time you need for post-surgery rehab depends on the extent of your procedure and your physical condition. For some patients, only a few weeks of treatment is needed, while others may require several months of support.

Do you need physical therapy after surgery?

Your surgeon can tell you if you’d benefit from physical therapy after your surgery. While there are some minor surgeries that may not require rehabilitation, many patients benefit from our post-surgery rehab protocols, as it’s common for range of motion and muscle strength to decrease after surgery.

What happens if you don’t do physical therapy after surgery?

Without physical therapy after surgery, your range of motion is likely to be limited and not improve until you receive treatment. Your muscles may atrophy and the healing process will be impeded.

Can you go to a chiropractor after back surgery?

Yes, chiropractic care is safe for patients who have had back surgery. Our team has helped countless patients recover after back surgery by supporting the body’s natural healing abilities, improving range of motion, and alleviating post-surgical pain. We use chiropractic treatment in conjunction with physical therapy for optimal results.

How long after back surgery can I see a chiropractor?

You can see a chiropractor anytime after your back surgery, but it’s important that you tell your chiropractor that you’ve just had surgery so they can adjust their treatments accordingly. The focus of their treatments will be helping your body heal after your surgery.

Is chiropractic safe after spinal surgery?

Yes, post-surgery chiropractic care is not only safe after spinal surgery, but beneficial. We can provide gentle care to support you through the recovery process and use physical therapy exercises to increase your mobility.
