Post-surgery rehab physical therapy has been known to relieve pain after surgery with less or no pain medication. This is achieved with specialized methods, techniques, and modalities, such as ultrasound, fascia release, laser therapy, Shockwave therapy, and home exercise programs.
Physical therapy not only aids in improving mobility, allowing individuals to get back on their feet faster after surgery, but also plays a crucial role in helping with post-operative healing of repairs and replacements. What’s more? Physical therapy is an effective choice for managing pain levels, thereby reducing the need for opioid medications.
