After surgery - Injury Rehabilitation

Professional athletes who undergo surgery for sports injury would undergo a compulsory duration of a systematic and guided recovery process called injury rehabilitation. The process is initiated as soon as possible to ensure that the site of surgery is allowed to heal swiftly.
Initially, various modalities (e.g. cold therapy, electrotherapy) are used to reduce tissue oedema and pain. Soon afterwards, simple exercises are initiated to strengthen the affected limb while allowing a gradual increase in the range of motion. Over a series of carefully monitored evaluation of function, the physiotherapist and physician adjusts the design of the recovery program to suit the individual. Complications like reinjury, ligament or tendon laxity, instability may occur,if the athlete proceeds too quickly whereas the opposite may occur if the limb is kept immobilised for too long. The later phase of rehabilitation involves more vigourous physical exercises and more difficult skills.

Always check with your surgeon, physiotherapist or physician if you are unsure of what you are doing. Do not proceed if your exercises cause you too much pain. Plan your surgery with the injury rehabilitation in mind and you will have a more successful recovery.
