Coming Back from a Surgical Procedure Can be Difficult

At Old Bridge Spine and Wellness, our team understands that any surgical procedure, no matter how routine can be a stressful experience. It’s natural to worry about preparing for surgery as well as wondering how quickly your body will recover and regain mobility.

NJ Spine and Wellness have experience in helping patients heal following surgery. From natural pain management to injury rehabilitation, our post-op physical therapy program will help you heal faster and get back to an active lifestyle.

Before you schedule a procedure, we encourage you to consult with us so we can also go over the risk and benefits with you.

Post-op, our NJ Spine and Wellness team will help manage your pain as well as mobility to ensure you’re recovering in the best and fastest way possible.

Coping with Post-Op Pain

After an operation it is natural to experience swelling and inflammation at the operation’s site. Physiotherapy treatments including hot/cold therapy and laser therapy are all ways to reduce inflammation. Controlling inflammation and swelling helps to manage and reduce a patient’s need for medications. Our physiotherapy treatments also increase circulation, bring fresh oxygen-rich blood to soft tissue. Increased circulation helps to flush out waste and support the body’s internal healing process after a surgery.

Post-operative Care can begin as soon as the patient returns home after their procedure, or if you are immobile, as soon as you have medical clearance from your doctor.

Our NJ Spine and Wellness team will develop and customize a recovery plan based on the injury, age and body type.

The most common post-operative exercises involve range of motion, exercises to improve joint and muscle mobility, transferring training from chairs or beds to standing, gait training with devices on both flat surfaces and chairs.

Following an injury and subsequent surgical treatment, it is vital for the patient to not remain seated for too long. Our NJ Spine and Wellness facility offers a multidisciplinary approach for post-operative patients following injury and subsequent surgical treatments.
