Surgery puts your body through enormous trauma, so it needs time and special attention to return to its former glory. Once the initial resting phase is over, you need to get moving. Your body is made to move, even though it may be telling you otherwise after surgery. But the post-surgery movement you do must be measured and targeted, using proper form and pace. You get professional guidance to reach your optimum rehabilitation and recovery with post-op physical therapy in Brooklyn. Pretty much any surgery you have requires rehabilitation steps for the best results in your recovery. This generally means some combination of rest and exercises to encourage healing, build strength and prevent further complications.
