Post-operative therapy encompasses a wide range of interventions depending on the type and severity of the injury sustained.
Early movement of the affected body part is essential to reduce oedema (excess of watery fluid collecting in the cavities or tissues of the body) and prevent stiffness or atrophy from lack of use.
It is important for patients to get back to their regular activities as soon as they can to regain their sense of independence as well as regaining function and strength. Active exercise typically begins 6-8 weeks following surgery.
