Clients often ask me why the surgical recovery process is different from individual to individual. They've seen a few friends who never really recovered, while others they know have come out of surgery with flying colors.
Before going into surgery themselves, they want to know... "what are the things I'll need to overcome to improve recovery after surgery?"
There are 3 things that happen right after surgery that might limit your recovery process. Keep in mind, I don't want this to be all doom and gloom - none of this is insurmountable. But I do want you to use this as an understanding for why a quality rehab program (and discipline and consistency on your end) is needed to improve recovery after surgery.
1) Scar tissue formation: Scar tissue is a rigid tissue that drastically affects the mobility of the tissue it covers. When scar tissue sets in, it can be extremely difficult (but doable) to regain mobility after surgery. Scar tissue also limits blood flow to the healing site, which can delay recovery.
2) Mobility becomes limited: Not only can scar tissue formation affect mobility, but the muscles themselves will become less mobile. Surgery introduces a trauma to the body, and when a trauma is introduced to the body, the nervous system becomes less comfortable utilizing the muscles in the affected area, reducing mobility. Being consistent with your PT routine is key to overcome these mobility challenges.
3) Compensations pattern develop: Due to the restricted mobility, the body figures out new ways to move. This works well in the short term, but long term, these new movement patterns will put more stress into other areas of the body that could lead to future injuries.
Neuro Therapy technology is designed to overcome all of these hurdles, decreasing the chances of scar tissue formation, increasing mobility, and ensuring compensation patterns don't develop over time.
And the best part is that you can learn to use the technology from home as a supplement to your existing rehab plan prescribed by your doctor and physical therapist.
Clients who use the technology from home report increasing range of motion, gaining strength, and getting back to life at a quicker rate.
