When you require surgery, there are many things that run through your mind. Will it be successful? How will it affect me? How much pain will I have? While the answers to these questions are never certain, you can help ease your mind by having a post-surgery plan.
At Moriarty Physical Therapy, we provide people in the Cary, North Carolina area with post-surgical physical therapy. We offer personalized, one-on-one treatment using manual therapy and the latest therapeutic techniques, so you get the best results. We are wholly owned and operated by highly qualified doctors of physical therapy and always put our patients’ needs first.
The Benefits of Post-Surgery Physical Therapy
The benefits of physical therapy are wide-ranging and can make a major difference in the quality and speed of your recovery.
Professional sports teams always have a physical therapist on staff in order to keep their athletes healthy and reduce injury recovery time. While we do work with professional athletes, at Moriarty Physical Therapy, you don’t need to be a professional athlete to get the same benefits from your post-surgery physical therapy. We happily serve everyone in our community.
When you work with us, just a few of the many benefits you can see include:
Physical therapy can help your recovery in both the short and long term. Continued movement and increased blood flow aid your body in the natural healing process and help you regain muscle and mobility. This allows your body to heal more quickly and improves long-term results.
We take the time to get to know our Cary, NC patients, and physical therapy patients from Durham, NC, and other nearby communities around the Raleigh area, and continually update their treatment plan in order to get the best results.
The increased blood flow and flexibility gained through physical therapy are also important in reducing pain.
The increased blood flow helps reduce inflammation, and added flexibility helps stop muscles and joints from becoming stiff. Reducing your post-surgical pain lessens your reliance on pain medication, which reduces cost, as well as the serious potential side effects of these medications, and allows you to get back to your old self.
Less Chance of Reinjury
After surgery, your chances of another injury increase. This can be because you try to do activities the way you did before the surgery when your body isn’t ready. That’s why it is so important to take every precaution necessary to keep yourself healthy.
Fortunately, the regained muscle and flexibility you get through physical therapy greatly decrease the chance of reinjury and get you back to your pre-injury state (or better!) faster.
