Surgeries and surgery recovery can look different for everyone, especially considering the abundance of procedures modern medicine has to offer. Regardless of the unique circumstances of any individual, there is always one common denominator after every surgery: a recovery period. Most times after surgery, the patient will need the help of others to complete daily tasks, creating an urgent need for assistance.
Healthcare at home is a great resource for those who recently underwent a medical procedure, or have an upcoming planned surgery. Many opt for home health services as it could be safer, more comfortable and convenient for them. Those who have used these services report that they have achieved greater comfort in terms of controlling pain or anxiety and have gotten better sleep. Being taken care of at home can also lessen the likelihood of complications such as various infections.

Therapy at home after surgery
Physical therapy after surgery is an imperative part of rehabilitation for many types of surgeries, as it directly affects the healing process and helps the patient get back to normal operations in life. Physical therapy helps the patient regain mobility and independence faster, giving another reason as to why home health can help improve the quality of life for a patient going through such an isolating process.
Many common surgeries require a certain amount of physical therapy throughout and beyond the recovery process, such as:
· Shoulder or rotator cuff surgery
· Knee surgery or replacement
· Hip surgery or replacement
· Back and spine surgery
· Ankle or foot surgery
