Post-Gynecological Surgery Physiotherapy
At Opal Physio Langley, we help women who have had surgery in their pelvic area get better and feel stronger! This is called “post-gynecological surgery physiotherapy.” We understand that it can be a bit scary and confusing, but our friendly and skilled physiotherapists are here to help you heal and get back to doing what you love!
What is post-gynecological surgery physiotherapy?
Gynecological surgery is a surgery that involves a woman’s reproductive system. After having this type of surgery, it’s important to take good care of your body as it heals. That’s where physiotherapy comes in.
Why do you need physiotherapy after gynecological surgery?
When you have surgery in your pelvic area, you may feel pain and stiffness, and it might be hard to move around. However, many patients do not receive physiotherapy care following gynecological surgery due to a lack of awareness about its importance.
Physiotherapists play an essential role in the treatment of women undergoing gynecological surgery. Our physiotherapists will help you feel better by guiding you through special exercises and treatments designed just for you!
What are some reasons women undergo gynecological surgery?
Women may undergo a gynecological procedure for different reasons, including uterine prolapse, cancer, cervix or ovarian tumours, endometriosis, bleeding, adenomyosis etc. Gynecological surgeries include hysterectomy, oophorectomy, salpingectomy, myomectomies, laparoscopies, endometrial ablation, pelvic floor repair for pelvic organ prolapse etc.
How can physiotherapy help after gynecological surgery?
Physiotherapists will create a personalized treatment plan just for you. They will help you with exercises and movements that can:
Reduce pain: After surgery, it’s normal to feel some pain. Our physiotherapy treatments can help reduce that pain by improving blood flow and relaxing your muscles by reducing swelling and inflammation.
Improve strength: We’ll work with you to build up the strength in your pelvic area, including pelvic floor muscles, which are important for your overall health and improvement.
Increase flexibility: Our treatments can help you become more flexible, making moving around and doing your daily activities easier.
Help with scar tissue: Sometimes, scar tissue can form after surgery, making it harder to move. Our physiotherapists will use special techniques to help break up that scar tissue so you can move more efficiently.
