Post-Op Spine Care

Recovering from spine surgery can take a few weeks to six months, on average. It depends on your procedure and your physical condition prior to your surgery, as well as to your commitment to following up with a rehabilitation program. Attending physical therapy before your surgery can help you perform exercises safely, so you go into your procedure as strong as possible, and experience a quicker recovery. A rehab program after surgery may start as early as one week post op, but will depend on your physician's advice.

Physical therapy helps to restore your strength, range of motion, balance, gait, and get you back to the life you want to be living. We will address the imbalances that may have led to injuring your back, or that you may have adopted in trying to protect yourself from the pain.

Treatment may include manual therapy, stretching, progressive strengthening exercises, and education in posture, body mechanics, and ergonomics.

Beside specific progressive strengthening exercises, we will teach you how to get in and out of bed, lift properly, and may give you advice on your work station set up and how to positon your car seat.  We will strive to give you guidance until you have met your goals for a functional, active lifestyle.
