Rehab after surgery is more than just following a general protocol of exercises and stretches. It is a very specific journey to get you back to functioning your best, and oftentimes performing even stronger than you were before.
There are countless questions you’ll ask yourself – like “am I doing this right?” “Is my incision supposed to look like that? Should this still hurt? How hard should I be pushing?” Having an experienced guide on your post-surgical journey is invaluable. We’ll answer every question and keep you on track the entire way. Your rehab will be unique to the activities or sports you are planning to return to.
We offer Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training as a tool for building strength right after surgery. BFR is a technique that combines low load exercise with controlled blood flow occlusion in order to create similar strength gains as you would with high load training. This is especially useful postoperatively, when patients require muscle strengthening, but high load and high-intensity exercises are not yet clinically appropriate. Training with BFR allows for greater strength gains without overstressing the muscles or joints.
