POST OP CARE
There are unfortunate times where surgery is the only option to repair and injury. It is imperative that the guidance you receive is from someone who understands the procedures, what is required going into the surgery and an effective recovery protocol post-surgery.
Randy Goodman has managed hundreds of post-operative cases, for many of the best surgeons in North America, including observing many procedures in the operating room. As well he has been a consultant in recovery for many professional teams and their athletes during the off-season.
The first step to effective recovery is understanding the mechanism of injury that has occurred, and the procedure to be performed. Often individual surgeons have distinct procedures they use, and this is important to know in planning the recovery.
The next step is to have a well designed Pre- Operative plan to strength related areas, so that you are in the best possible condition prior to the surgery. This has shown significantly better results post-operatively. As well, with athletes it is essential to maintain your fitness level in a safe manner to minimize the time it takes to return to sport following your recovery from the surgery. This pre-operative plan will take about 4 weeks to complete prior to your surgery , if the time is available.
Once the procedure is completed by the surgeon, Randy will communicate with the surgeon about the procedure performed, and challenges, and the protocol of recovery will be agreed to. Post- operative inflammation is managed, and range of motion and strength are restored. Rechecks with the surgeon are planned and you are monitored every step of the way. Finally , you are moved into the next phases of the Goodman Recovery Continuum.
