Post-Surgical & Injuries Rehab

Surgical intervention is a very traumatic and invasive procedure that involves many structures both joints and soft tissues. No surgery is considered a success if the previous functionality is not achieved. thus, for this a special Rehab program is designed that meets your goals and your usual functionality. The Rehab program concentrates on proper joint motion, muscles strength break any abnormal adhesions, possibly balance train to avoid re-injury. Rehabilitation program takes time, step by step to achieve appropriate results.

How does Rehabilitation program work?

The rehabilitation program has short term goals and long-term goals, set according to the patient’s requirement.

2- Reduction of swelling.
