Frederick Neal, ACE Orthopedic & Functional Movement Specialist talks about the importance of pre & post-surgical strength training.

Pre & post-surgical strength training play a crucial role in the overall success of surgical procedures and the subsequent recovery process. Pre-surgical strength training helps condition your body for the upcoming procedure, potentially reducing the extent of muscle loss and improving your ability to recover post-surgery.

Enhances your overall strength levels before surgery helping to improve your physical fitness, cardiovascular health, and muscular strength. This can contribute to a smoother recovery process. Strengthening the muscles around the surgical site can improve the support and stability of the affected area. It may also compensate for potential muscle atrophy that can occur after surgery.

Post-surgical strength training promotes tissue healing. Appropriate strength training exercises after surgery helps stimulate blood flow and oxygenation to the affected area. This can aid in tissue healing and reduce the risk of complications such as infections.

Also helps to restores mobility, function and focuses on rebuilding muscle strength, joint stability, and range of motion. This helps restore mobility and functionality, enabling you to return to your daily activities and regain independence.

Surgery and subsequent immobility can lead to muscle atrophy and weakness. Post-surgical strength training combats this by targeting specific muscle groups, promoting muscle growth, and preventing further muscle loss. Appropriate strength training, under the guidance of a healthcare professional, can help alleviate post-surgical pain, reduce inflammation, and improve overall comfort.

Training will Improve psychological well-being. It provides a sense of accomplishment, boosts confidence, and helps individuals regain control over their bodies.
