Why am I experiencing pain?
Unfortunately, failed surgeries are more common than you might think. According to Ortho Bethesda, “one study estimated the success rate for back surgeries to be about 50%.”
This estimate is conservative because most success rates are determined by a variety of factors. Your health, the specific surgery, the source of your pain, and any surgical complications all have an impact on whether or not your procedure is effective.
Postoperative pain, regardless of the type of surgery, is an unfortunate reality as well.
According to the US Institute of Medicine, “80% of patients who undergo surgery report postoperative pain, with 88% of these patients reporting moderate, severe, or extreme pain levels.”
Why should I choose physical therapy after a failed surgery?
Though pain after surgery is very common, this doesn’t mean you should resign yourself to living in discomfort. Every year, our physical therapy team meets hundreds of individuals recovering from surgery. Physical therapy is a safe, natural, and healthy way to aid your body in getting better after dealing with the stress that accompanies a failed operation.
Whether you underwent a joint replacement, knee surgery, back surgery, or some other procedure, we’re confident that working with a physical therapist can help you heal and get back to your active lifestyle as efficiently and safely as possible.
Many of the interventions and therapeutic techniques we provide in physical therapy work directly on the central nervous system to help modulate pain signals being sent to your brain, while others help reduce swelling, inflammation, and stiffness.
A physical therapist can teach you exercises, provide manual interventions like massage, and implement non-invasive modalities that can work together to alleviate your pain and even reduce your dependence on pain-relieving medications, including opioids.
