As spine specialists, we believe that after a spine procedure, it is essential that the patients undergo specialized spine rehabilitation, adapted to the type of operation which they have undergone and their biometric and anatomical characteristics. It is important that the rehabilitation team have detailed knowledge of each patient’s spine problem, and rehabilitation will therefore begin with an initial assessment by a rehab physician.
The rehabilitation plan must combine different types of treatment: passive and active, the latter with the active participation of the patient. Each of these must be implemented at a certain precise time during the patient’s recovery process.
It is very important that in addition to addressing recovery of tissues damaged by surgery or the disease itself, treatment should have the aim of strengthening deep muscle groups, which are often not worked on in conventional physiotherapy protocols. For example, it is important to strengthen the following muscles: psoas, multifidus, abdominal wall musculature and all respiratory muscles. By working on the deep muscles, we will achieve optimal body posture and avoid relapses due to bad postures or bad postural habits.
Finally, we have to work on the pelvic girdle and the pelvis, spine, hips and legs. This is achieved by means of specific sacroiliac postural exercises and strengthening the iliolumbar and ilium-ischium-sacral muscles, and the muscles of the hips, lower abdomen and buttocks. By doing so we will prevent, among others, a frequent cause of postoperative pain such as sacroiliitis.
Fisiospine arose due to the need to provide our patients, and anyone suffering from spine pain, with a specialized spine rehabilitation center.
In this center, we have all the specialists that need to intervene at different times during spine rehabilitation. They have been trained by us to help our patients achieve a proper recovery.
