Physiotherapy or Hand therapy after surgery??
Most of our patients are often shocked or scared that they are referred for physiotherapy or hand therapy after surgery...and in some cases, immediately or just one day after surgery.
If you're also wondering about this, here's the reason why 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. In many cases, such early and careful exercises done by trained and experienced physiotherapists and hand therapists allows gradual loading of structures and prevent unnecessary scarring that allow the operated structures to gain strength quicker."
We're actually quite used to it, and the earliest we've seen a patient is ONE HOUR after their surgery. Patients may still be in their surgery garment and there we are, helping them with therapy already.
We work closely with orthopedic and hand surgeons no matter which clinic we operate from, and it's a common sight for the therapists and doctors to be corresponding by phones, text messages and even emails, for enhanced therapy plus surgery outcomes.
The field of hand
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
graduates of general surgery (GS), orthopedic surgery (Ortho) and
plastic surgery. Plastic surgeons and orthopedic surgeons receive
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.
In our Singapore
Physiotherapy and Hand Therapy practice, we work closely with orthopedic
surgeons and hand surgeons, whom we will refer to whenever necessary
for the benefit of our patients. Oftentimes, it is because we work
closely with the orthopedic and hand surgeons, closely communicating our
findings and therapy reports, that we can deliver a better overall
medical and rehabilitation results for our patients.
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. Hand surgical interventions incorporates techniques
from orthopedics, plastic surgery, general surgery, neurosurgery,
vascular and microvascular surgery and psychiatry and it is truly a
complex, interesting and fascinating specialty.
surgeons performs a wide range of operations such as tendon release and
repairs, fracture repairs, tendon transfers, reconstruction surgeries,
repairs of arthritis, replantation, soft tissue correction, nerve
reconstruction and surgery to improve function in paralysed upper limbs.
