Your surgery is a success, and now the real work begins! Physical and occupational therapists at The NeuroMedical Center are experts at helping patients regain strength and loss of mobility after a back, neck, shoulder, knee, or hip operation. It is important that you team up with an experienced therapist after having surgery so that they can work with you to help you speed up the recovery process.
Recovery After Spine Surgery
No therapy team in Louisiana offers more experience when it comes to helping patients get back on their feet after back or neck surgery. The NeuroMedical Center’s therapists work closely with the region’s top providers of spine surgery and offer unparalleled expertise when it comes to maximizing recovery and minimizing potential future problems following any spine procedure. Even when a surgery is minimally-invasive and has provided immediate pain relief, physical therapy is critical to your recovery. Our therapists offer a variety of therapeutic methods to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion that will prevent or minimize the chances of re-injury or any recurrent pain.
Physical Therapy Aids Healing
Whether you are recovering spine, hip, knee, or shoulder surgery, physical therapy will be vital to your healing process. Not only can it help you heal faster, improve flexibility, strength, range of motion, and minimize scar tissue development, it can also help you manage pain levels without the use of prescription narcotics. Outpatient Therapy is not only about recovery, but setting our patients up for active and healthy lifestyles long after they have been released from our care.
Therapists at The NeuroMedical Center always aim to help patients return to a pre-injury activity level. Your treatment will consist of a series of progressively challenging exercises and therapies aimed to restore range of motion, stability, and strength:
- Strategies for pain reduction including modalities such as ice, heat, and electrical stimulation
- Flexibility exercises to improve range of motion
- Exercises to strengthen muscles
- Posture, balance, and coordination training
- Gait analysis and training
- Manual therapy techniques
- Muscle Relaxation
- Self-care training
- Home exercise instruction
