Physiotherapy after Spine Surgery

The choice to undergo a spine surgery is a tough one to make. There’s a lot of concern and consideration about the risks, complications, safety, competence of the surgical team, success rate, resources, support system and prognosis. We understand. At PhysioCraft, we work with you through the journey and the decision making process.

Once the decision has been made to have a spine surgery, ideal circumstances require that you are seen by the physiotherapist not only after the surgery but also before the surgery. Asides getting acquainted with you, pre-surgery physiotherapy prepares you and your body for the surgical process and reviews everyday activities with you. While on admission and a few hours after the surgery, physiotherapy should start.  In the early hours post-op, everyday movements such as how to breathe, how to cough and get out of bed are examples of the movements which are reviewed.

As you get stronger after the neck or back surgery, there are several ways in which physiotherapy helps after spine surgery.

Pain management: While a certain amount of pain can occur after surgery, there are ways to manage it conservatively and without medication.
