As a fully multi-diciplinary clinic, we at Axon understand the importance of a comprehensive rehabilitation program for both pre-surgical movement and post-surgical recovery. Whether you are planning to undergo or have already undergone shoulder, knee, ankle, or spinal surgery, a well-designed pre-hab or rehab program can make a significant difference in your outcome and recovery and overall well-being.

Pre-surgical Movement Rehab Program:

The goal of pre-surgical movement rehab is to optimize your physical function and prepare your body for surgery. This program typically involves exercises that aim to maintain or improve your range of motion, strength, and flexibility. Here are some of the key components of a pre-surgical movement rehab program:

Range of motion exercises:

These exercises help to maintain or improve your joint mobility, which can become limited due to the pain or injury. Examples of range of motion exercises include shoulder rotations, knee bends, and ankle circles.

Strengthening exercises:

Strengthening exercises are designed to improve the strength of the muscles surrounding the joint, which can help to provide support and stability. Examples of strengthening exercises include leg presses, shoulder presses, and ankle raises.

Flexibility exercises:

Flexibility exercises aim to improve your muscle flexibility and reduce your risk of injury. Examples of flexibility exercises include yoga poses, stretching exercises, and Pilates.

Post-Surgical Rehab Program:

After surgery, your body needs time to heal, and a carefully designed rehab program can help you to regain your physical function and mobility. Here are some of the key components of a post-surgical rehab program:

Pain management:

Post-surgical pain is common, and pain management is a crucial aspect of the rehab program. This may involve pain medications, ice, heat, or other modalities.

Range of motion exercises:

After surgery, your joint mobility may be limited, and range of motion exercises can help to improve your flexibility and mobility.

Strengthening exercises:

Strengthening exercises are critical in building strength and stability around the joint or spine. These exercises should be progressive and customized to the specific needs of the individual.

Gait and balance training:

Depending on the type of surgery, gait and balance training may be necessary. This can help to improve your coordination, balance, and overall walking ability.

Functional exercises:

Functional exercises aim to improve your ability to perform everyday activities such as walking, climbing stairs, or lifting. These exercises should be tailored to your specific needs and goals.

In summary, a comprehensive rehab program for pre-surgical movement and post-surgical recovery should be individualized, progressive, and aimed at optimizing your physical function and overall well-being. Axon Integrative Health prioritizes evidence-based approaches to rehab and works closely with patients and their other providers to achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
