Why You Should Have Post Surgery Rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is a long process and many are faced with challenges during their recovery. Surgery can be performed within hours whereas the rehabilitation period takes many months, potentially even up to a year. The difference between the length of the surgery and the time needed for rehabilitation is large, and patients should be aware of the difference.

It is extremely important that the patient is committed to the entire process of their rehabilitation as post-op rehabilitation is a progressive activity. Progressively increasing the workload of the joint can build strength and aid in recovery.
