Spine surgery is a major undertaking, and rehabilitation is an important
part of helping patients get the most possible benefit from their surgery.
Essentially, rehabilitation (
physical therapy, exercise) can help patients recover from spine surgery as quickly and
completely as possible.
It can be thought of as alignment and balance for your body. If you buy
new tires for your car, they won’t last as long if they are not
aligned and balanced and the new tires will be a waste of money. Your
spine surgery is like new tires, and a physical therapist’s role is to do the
alignment, balance, and engine tuning to make sure that the effects of
the surgery are as positive as possible.
There are several ways that
Houston Spine Rehabilitation physical therapists typically will work with our patients to help him
or her get back into good physical condition and heal from the injury
and back surgery.
Pain Control after Spine Surgery
Our physical therapists are trained to help manage pain following back surgery.
Controlling pain is an important first step in allowing patients to regain their strength,
as it is very difficult to complete a rehabilitation program if one is
in a great deal of pain.
