The prospect of going through surgery is stressful for everyone. However, you can mitigate some of this stress by having your recovery regimen planned ahead of time. When you have post-surgery physical therapy treatments scheduled after surgery, you know you’re giving yourself the best chance at a full recovery. And, really, you deserve nothing less. 

At Moriarty Physical Therapy, we help members of the Durham, North Carolina community on their journey back to a normal, healthy life. Since we are owned and operated by the most qualified doctors of physical therapy, we can always put our patients’ needs first. We also work one-on-one with all our patients to ensure they are receiving the absolute best care possible.    

Post-Surgery Physical Therapy Benefits

Physical therapy can have a positive effect on anyone’s life, whether they have had surgery or not. 

Physical therapy helps strengthen your muscles and improves flexibility, which works to counteract the wear and tear your body faces every day. However, post-surgery physical therapy is especially important.

After surgery, your body is in a weakened state. Thankfully, post-surgery physical therapy aids in slowing or reversing strength loss and improving mobility. At Moriarty Physical Therapy, we work with our clients in Durham, NC, plus people come to us for physical therapy from Raleigh and the surrounding communities –  to map out a road to recovery, offering many great benefits along the way. Just a few of those benefits include: 

Faster Recovery

Post-surgery physical therapy helps boost the speed at which your body heals after surgery. It does this by strengthening muscles and improving blood flow. The improved blood flow keeps the tissue oxygenated and brings in white blood cells to fight off infection, reducing your risk of a setback. 

At Moriarty Physical Therapy, we are proudly trained in the latest and most effective techniques that are proven to greatly aid the body in the healing process, and we’ll use them all to benefit you and help you recover as quickly and as smoothly as possible. 

Less Pain

After surgery, pain is inevitable. It can make you uncomfortable and stop you from doing the things you love.

However, our post-surgery physical therapy can help reduce or eliminate your pain. The continued movement that comes with physical therapy helps reduce inflammation and allows you to be more mobile. This means less pain medication and a speedy return to your normal activities.

Strength and Stamina

In the period after your surgery, your body loses strength and flexibility. When this happens, you become more susceptible to injury. Post-surgery physical therapy helps you to avoid any excess muscle loss or mobility loss, speeding your healing and reducing your risk of injury. And, if you’ve already experienced these symptoms, our therapy can help you to rebuild and to grow stronger, perhaps even stronger than you were before the surgery.

With our expert help, you can get back into your normal activities sooner and with more confidence.
