Post-Surgery Rehabilitation Options

If you've had surgery, you'll most likely start some form of rehabilitation while you're still in the hospital. From inpatient to outpatient to home care, advanced rehabilitation options are available depending on your level of independence and functionality after you leave the hospital. A nurse may visit you at home to ensure your wound is healing. A physical therapist may also visit until your first appointment with your orthopedist. You may even begin outpatient physical rehabilitation without the need for home care. Physical rehabilitation can last from 6 to 12 weeks after surgery.

Outpatient Therapy

If you're suffering from arthritis, osteoporosis, pulled ligaments, carpal tunnel syndrome or broken bones, your orthopedist or primary care doctor may prescribe a round of rehabilitation, which you can pursue at one of our many outpatient facilities. In some cases, therapy can be obtained without a referral.

Our individualized and comprehensive outpatient facilities with state-of-the-art equipment are conveniently located throughout the MidHudson Valley. Our locations are staffed with licensed physical and occupational therapists who are skilled in treating orthopedic conditions. Some locations offer hand therapy. After a complete evaluation, therapists will develop a thorough and comprehensive therapy plan that addresses your specific needs.

Treatment Techniques

Your personalized treatment plan might include one or more of the following modalities:

  • Manual therapy (including joint mobilization, traction, manipulation of soft tissue)
  • Massage
  • Splint making
  • Therapeutic exercise (including arthritis-oriented)
  • Ambulation and stair training
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Iontophoresis (noninvasive application of anti-inflammatory medication)
  • Neuromuscular, ergonomic and posture re-education
  • Moist heat and ice application

Hand Therapy

Our physical medicine departments are staffed with occupational and physical therapists who specialize in the treatment of injuries to the hand. Focusing on rehabilitation as well as future prevention, we treat hand conditions such as tendonitis, sprains, strains and fractures, tendon and nerve injuries and more.

The treatments we use include:

  • Splinting
  • Wound and scar care
  • Manual therapy
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Sensory retraining
  • Self-care training
  • Pain management
  • Occupational retraining

Pain Management

Whether you are suffering from chronic pain or post-surgery discomfort, our dedicated team of board certified physicians is ready to customize a personal pain management program for you. While physical therapy may be painful in the beginning, its goal is to strengthen muscles and release tension, thereby reducing pain in the long run.

Beyond our physical therapy and exercise programs, we also offer a variety of pain-relieving methods, including nerve blocks (for the interruption of pain pathways), epidural steroid injections (to reduce swelling around the nerves), trigger point injections (to relieve pain in specific areas) and nerve stimulation (TENS and dorsal column stimulators).  For more information see Pain Management
