Post-Operative care in the hospital
After the patient’s surgery is complete, the patient will be moved to a recovery room. The patient probably stays there for a couple of hours while the patient wakes up from anaesthesia. The patients feel groggy when he wakes up. Some people also feel nauseated.
While the patient is in the recovery room, staff will monitor his blood pressure, breathing, temperature, and pulse. They may ask the patient to take deep breaths to assess his lung function. They may check the patient surgical site for signs of bleeding or infection and also watch for signs of an allergic reaction. For many types of surgery, the patients will be placed under general anesthesia. Anesthesia may cause an allergic reaction in a few people.

Types of physical therapy:-
Stretching is essential to regain and maintain the range of motion in joints and the flexibility of muscles after an operation. Stretching helps in reducing pain and swelling.
Strengthening exercises help improve muscle function surrounding the surgical area and throughout the entire body. Strengthening the patient body’s core (midsection) is also key to overall strength and stability while recovering – and to get the patient self-moving again.
Range-of Motion Therapy
Range of motion refers to how broadly and fully the patient can move the affected joint or limb in all possible directions in which it should naturally be able to move. Range-of-motion therapy can include:
- Passive routines, which are performed on the patient’s body by the therapist guiding patient movements
- Routines in which the patient and the PT both do the hard work
- Active routines, where patient perform exercises on patient own
Ultrasound and Electrical Therapy
In these types of therapies, high-frequency sound waves and low electrical currents perform therapeutic actions on deep tissues. This helps to improve blood flow, re-train the nerves in the area, and maximize the overall results of patient surgery.
