Physical therapy is recommended for after surgery. Many patients pay more attention to the hours spent at the hospital that they don’t consider the importance of rehabilitation after the operation. If your doctor has prescribed physical therapy after your surgery, it’s because he believes it will be a key part of your recovery process. The main reasons it is recommended after surgery is: to promote healing, regain mobility, and to have a faster recovery that you are more involved in.
