Preview Mode Links will not work in preview mode

Movement restrictions are super common if you're working with a PT or are recovering from surgical procedures. And it wasn't uncommon for me to work with patients in the physical therapy clinic who had been given similar instructions to avoid specific movements for a specific amount of time.

But there was always the lingering question of how long.

Should you avoid that movement for days?



On today's show, I'm joined by physical therapist, Dr. Sarah Court, to learn about post-surgery recovery and exactly what you should do with those movement restrictions (including how long to follow them).

Sarah shares what her own surgical recovery looks like after a (very) recent double-mastectomy and the conversations to have with your surgeon to get you back to moving pain-free, as soon as possible.

You’ll learn:

  • The best way to manage your recovery post-surgery
  • Questions you should be asking your surgeon
  • And how to get back to moving, pain-free, no matter how long it's been
