Postoperative Physiotherapy

(Ayesha Ahmad, Peshawar)

In a mundane life, one is attending to various activities like being engaged in domestic activities, laboring at a field, working in office, driving a car, levelling in with acquaintances, even infrequently going for tasks which requires liveliness and briskness.

In such day-to-day living, a body is typically susceptible to get injured, wounded, sprained and stress fractures. Musculoskeletal lesions more probably occur.

Some pileups and accidents come about to be minor ones where the stricken area reinstates to its original functionality promptly by taking medicines, keeping diet on track and going for physical therapeutics whereas some uncompromising ones which eventuates in distortion and disfiguring of the structure inevitably instigating dysfunctioning.
Such injuries have no alternative other than undergoing a surgery.

Assorted types of surgeries are performed in respect to the injury.
I.Joint replacement: supplant the impaired joint with a prosthetic one.

II.Debridement: the eradication of an affected tissue after necrosis.

III.Arthroscopy: the examination and treatment of a joint by the dint of an arthroscope.

IV.Soft tissue repair: the revamping of a torn ligament or tendons.

V.Spine fusion: affix the vertebrae of a spine.

VI.Osteotomy: straighten out the bone deformities (usually congenital).

Following these orthopedic surgeries rest-cure (bed rest) is prescribed in contemplation of welcoming a swift recovery.
Howbeit in the course of rest-cure working-out physiotherapy is mandatory.

Physiotherapy plays a vital role in the healing process.
A physiotherapist lay eyes on the wounded area and react towards it by medicating it, ahead of it initiating irritation.

Physiotherapy builds-up and invigorates the circumferential muscles, which too adds to speedy healing process.

These therapeutics also get in the act of soothing down pain and swelling.
Pain is alleviated down without recommending any drugs and anesthetics, hence by
I.Ice packs
III.Electrical stimulation
IV.Massaging therapy.

It aids in impeding the formation of blood clots which usually results in swelling. It plainly regulates the blood circulation around the body. These clots can sometimes be life-threatening.

The therapy allows the victim to reattain their lost potency and ROM (range of motion) in the affected area and empowers one to restore their physical activeness.

Its paramount benefit is curbing the advancement of scar tissues and getting a handle on obesity.
If the scar tissues are not hampered at an earlier stage, its later uprooting is distressing equally to surgery. Obesity is the core of all health-pertaining complications.

A physiotherapist outlines a unique tailored exercise plan specific for the patient.

Physiotherapy does not aim to accomplish all its goals at once - "it is a progressive phased workout therapeutic."

The first phase governs the pain and swelling. It enables one to walk with mobility aids like crutches, canes etc.

The following phase targets to augment the restricted ROM lost stability and strength.

Finally and above all the third phase hark back the victim to their prior to injury state.

“You can reach maximum performance by engaging in physical activities.” ( Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!)
