Pain after surgery isn’t usually temporary. Pain following surgery can disrupt mood, sleep, and other aspects of mental and physical health. Surgery causes intense pain not just at the incision site but also in the surrounding areas. Experts point out that as days and weeks pass following the treatment, and patients’ lives return to a more regular state, they may have developed new ways of moving to compensate for the early discomfort. This can cause extra aches and pains as well as long-term dysfunction by disrupting the natural alignment of muscles and joints.
BENEFITS OF MASSAGE AFTER SURGERY
1. It helps the patients to deal with pain.
It would not only relieve pain but also lowers it. Massage is effective in alleviating post-operative discomfort.
2. It would reduce the stress and anxiety of the patient.
These tense and nervous sentiments are frequent both before and after surgery, and they can make pain considerably worse.
3. It can prevent swelling.
After a surgery, swelling is normal. Lymphatic drainage massage is a technique for reducing edema. It aids in the maintenance of the lymphatic drainage system by removing blocked fluid cellular wastes that cause edema. Massage helps reduce swelling by relaxing muscles and promoting healthy blood circulation.
4. It helps make the blood and oxygen flow better.
Proper blood and oxygen flow are necessary for speedier wound healing. Maintaining regular blood flow is critical since it is the distributor of nutrients to the damaged area. This encourages cellular and tissue regeneration, and clotting shields the site from outside substances, such as viruses and bacteria, which can cause infections.
5. It shortens the healing time.
Massage treatment improves nutrition delivery in the body by increasing blood flow, therefore reducing surgery recovery time Massage treatment is increasingly being shown to reduce hospital stays in research. Request massage from your medical staff.
6. It helps prevent scarring.
Massage also aids in the breaking up of scar tissue and the prevention of the production of new (excessive) scar tissue. This applies to both internal scar tissue (adhesions) and external skin scars.
7. It helps promote mobility and flexibility.
Massage also aids in the promotion of muscle and joint flexibility. The muscles and joints get locked and tight as a result of the patient sitting or laying before and after the procedure. Massage is the finest way to warm up and train those muscles and joints for flexibility and speedier movement, even if the patient is still immobile.
8. Strengthens the immune system.
Relaxed muscles increase the delivery of oxygen to the organs and skin, strengthening the immune system and preventing infections.
