Top 4 Tips for Post-Surgical Rehab Success, Anchorage, Alaska

Your recovery should be your top priority after surgery. Making sure that you make a full recovery is perhaps the most important thing you can do for your body. That’s why the post-surgical rehab experts at Excellence In Health Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Clinic P.C. strongly urge you to be an active participant in your own recovery.

While your body has its own natural way of recovery from surgery, it’s important that help you help the process along. In fact, here are four ways you can do just that:

Make Use of Ice & Heat Packs

Applying ice and heat at the surgical site may help reduce inflammation and pain as well as increase mobility. These are essential during the post-surgical rehab stage where you’ll be regaining your strength and finding your footing once again.

Take Ibuprofen as Needed

There’s no question that surgery is painful, and sometimes you may require ibuprofen to help you manage it. Like ice and heat packs, ibuprofen may also help you manage inflammation that results from the procedure. Talk to your doctor or chiropractor to ensure that taking ibuprofen is a good course of action during the post-surgery rehabilitation phase.

pain management Maintain a Healthy Diet

Making healthy food choices is a great way to ensure that your body gets the nutrients it needs to recover in a healthy and timely fashion. So, stock up on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and protein. Be sure to stick to appropriate portions to avoid excess calories and weight gain.

Listen to Your Body

Remember, your body has just undergone a major event and it needs adequate time to adjust. If you find that you’re just not up to certain activities after surgery, it’s a good idea to skip out on them. Overworking your body in the post-surgery phase can lead to complications and even hinder your progress.
