The importance of post operative rehabilitation

After a patient goes through surgery, abnormalities are corrected, but the body also suffers from injury as well. While the body is healing, without receiving the right therapy , other abnormalities, such as muscle contracture and stiffening can occur.Therefore, to receive the right treatment after surgery is critical to a patient’s recovery.

Recovery after an operation requires patients to return to normal living as much as possible. Physical therapy after the operation of a joint, bone, muscle or tendon is as almost as important as the operation itself. Proper, well-planned and personalized physical therapy helps with bone and wound healing, tissue repair, reduces scars, and leads to better functionality and flexibility. Without good post-operative rehabilitation, problems might occur and could lead re-operation which is more difficult to treat. Occupational therapy might also be appropriate if smaller bones and joints are involved. Our doctor specializing in pain could assist during the early phase when there is still some pain during movement

It is possible to achieve significant improvement. Many people do not complete their physio-rehab programs. Motivation and time are key issues for effective rehabilitation. Chiang Mai and ChivaCare provide ideal combination for a relaxed and supportive environment that provides good structure, but also a high-level of motivating factors due to the hospitality of our staff, the people and the entire city. Moreover, some operations you can plan, choosing the best time for your personal rehabilitation and rebooting Chiang Mai. Our standard program is the rehabilitation after an operation; however, we can also offer patients to do the operation while in Chiang Mai together with other medical needs that they may wish to address (dental and wellness are very popular).

Aside from providing post operative surgery, we can also coordinate with other specialists to adjust the treatment according to your needs. We believe that you deserve the best for your health.
