Recovery from orthopedic surgery can take a lot of time, but there are some tips you can follow up to make the process go as quickly as possible. Here are some of the basic but effective tips for recovering quickly from an orthopedic surgery:
1) Strictly Follow Post-Operation Instructions
Immediately after the surgery, you will most likely receive a set of specific instructions from your orthopedic surgeon and then you have to meet with a physical therapist to establish a rehabilitation program. It’s important to follow the instructions and recommendations of the doctor/physician and don’t hesitate to ask questions if you don’t understand what you are asked to do.
2) Regularly Go To Your Follow Up Appointments
It’s important to get your progress monitored by the doctor/physician and get your plan tweaked and customized, if there is a need.
3) Perform Rehabilitation Exercises
Your physician will determine your rehab program based upon your situation and set your exercise progression based upon your improvement. Again, for the best outcomes, it’s important to follow strictly as recommended by your physician.
4) Get Proper Nutrition
Eating well after surgery is surely going to help your body heal faster. Some of the foods that doctors/physician recommend includes lean protein (red meat, chicken or fish), dairy, and fresh citrus depending upon the type of surgery you have gone through. Vegetables are nutrient-rich, so keep in mind to eat plenty of green leafy plants including spinach.
5) Sleep Tight
While we sleep our body repairs tissues which promotes healing, so be sure to get at least eight hours of quality sleep each night.
6) Take Proper Medication
After surgery you are most likely be on some sort of pain medication. Talk to your doctor about how and when to take these medicines, and if you should add some multivitamins or other supplements to your daily rehabilitation plan.
7) Ask for Help
After surgery, you will be less mobile and will probably need help with your daily activities. Don’t hesitate to ask for help from your friends and family.
