Unfortunately, no matter how much we might wish, life doesn't go back to normal right away after surgery.

Either if you had a simple routine operation or you suffered a traumatic car accident, you will need some time to get back on your feet and function as usual.

Post-surgery rehabilitation can speed your recovery up immensely and ensure the treatment and surgery's success. 

Physical therapy (PT) is a big part of the post-operative rehabilitation process and helps patients regain strength, mobility, and confidence. It includes various techniques that target specific body areas, including stretches, exercises, hands-on therapy, and other modalities. 

Let's take a look at how physical therapy can help and what else you should consider.

Car Accident

A car accident is a traumatic event both physically and mentally. If you've experienced even a minor injury, pain, and discomfort caused by it, that can make getting back to regular life challenging.

It's also important to remember that after the accident, you should always consult your doctor. Even if you think that your injuries are minor, a professional will give you a proper exam and help you with recovery plans and execution. 

In addition to that, there are multiple other ways to speed up the recovery and healing time, which include proper nutrition, exercise, and physical therapy.

Orthopedic

You may have seen orthopedic physical therapy and physical therapy services offered at your local clinic and wondered what the difference between the two was.

So what is orthopedic physical therapy? In short, orthopedics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the musculoskeletal system and injuries to ligaments, tendons, muscles, and bones. And orthopedic physical therapists have additional training and education. 

The goal of it is, though, the same, to relieve pain and help the patient have better life quality by improving the function of the orthopedic (musculoskeletal) system— muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments.

Orthopedic physical therapists treat patients in outpatient rehabilitation centers, clinics, hospitals and perform home visits. Check here how one-on-one physical therapy can help your ailments.
