Spine Surgery Follow-Up Care

A physical therapist from EvergreenHealth Rehabilitation Care will work with you to develop a treatment program to help you heal from your spine surgery and strengthen the affected area to prevent a recurrence of the problem.

We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all rehab.

Our treatment programs are individually tailored toward your goals, because what you need will be completely different from what someone else needs, and what exercises work for others may not be effective for you.

We’ll begin by helping you manage the post-surgical pain and learn how to move within certain constraints while your tissues heal from the spine surgery.

As your recovery progresses, we’ll look at:

  • What led to your surgery
  • How the way you move might be adding stress to your back
  • What you need to change in order to prevent future injury

Once you have returned home, physical therapy will continue on an outpatient basis, along with periodic physician check-ups, to ensure recovery and rehabilitation is on track.

Throughout the rehabilitation phase, your physical therapist will keep your physicians fully informed about your progress.
