Physiotherapy And Hand Therapy After Surgery
Many of our patients are often shocked or scared that they are
referred immediately for
after surgery...and in some
cases, immediately same day or just one (1) day after surgery. Most patients wonder why, because sometimes they're worried or in some pain, but here's the reason why orthopedic surgeons often encourage for
physiotherapy and hand therapy as soon as possible after a surgery:
...early and careful
mobilization/exercises after surgery will accelerate tissue healing in
the proper directions, allowing quicker and shorter recovery periods.
many cases, such early and careful exercises done by trained and
experienced senior physiotherapists and hand therapists allows gradual loading
of structures and prevent unnecessary adhesions scarring that allow the operated
structures to gain strength quicker."
To assure you, our senior physiotherapists and hand therapists are actually quite used to it, and the earliest we've provided therapy to a patient post surgery can be as fast as within 60 minutes post surgery.
Our senior physios work closely with
- orthopedic doctors
- hand surgeons
- sports physicians
And no matter which Phoenix physio clinic
we work in, patients can be assured that our senior therapists and doctors
are often corresponding by phone calls, text messages and even emails, for one goal: to
enhance therapy outcomes after surgery.

surgical intervention includes both surgical and non-surgical
interventions that takes place in the upper limb, from the shoulder to
the tips of the fingers. Doctors who practices hand operations includes

extensive and significant training in hand surgery during their
housemanship and residency training, and some even extend one more year
to do hand fellowship training.
Sometimes orthopedic surgeons continue to develop their own and special
techniques to manage small bones, especially those found in the wrists
and hands. Plastic surgeons ahead of their expertise will develop
microsurgical techniques to repair small nerves and vessels within the
fingers and hands.

complex, interesting and fascinating specialty.
