We aim to help Casper, WY post-surgical clients regain their physical functionality quickly & effectively.

At Therapy Solutions, we know that following surgeries the flexibility of scar tissue is important to allow more complete return of motion and activity. This is accomplished through:

  • Management of scar tissue
  • Prophylaxis of post surgical fluids, including inflammation
  • Desensitization of the surgical site
  • Resolution of movement dysfunction
  • Correct postural asymmetry of the spine, pelvis, sacrum, ribs, etc.
  • Addressing imbalances in muscle tension due to improper neurological input

Post-surgical therapy treatment methods include:
  • Various manual therapies
  • Aquatic therapy in a warm water pool
  • Therapeutic exercise to provide strengthening and return of normal movement
  • Neurological re-education for proper sequencing during spinal stabilization
  • Dynamic lumbar stabilization, which is often interrupted following surgery
  • Swiss ball (physioball) programs
  • Home exercise programs addressing the individual's weakness
  • Education in pain management, scar management and postural feedback techniques that the patient can use when not in therapy

These treatments typically follow these kinds of diagnoses:
  • Mastectomy
  • Spinal surgeries
  • Joint replacements
  • Abdominal surgeries
  • Orthopedic surgeries

As with most other physical therapy treatment plans, the primary goal of therapy is to return the patient to their previous level of function without restrictions. Call or contact us today to get more information about how we can help you post-surgery.
