Spine Rehabilitation

Article written by: ALEXANDRU CRINTEA, MD, Orthopedics-traumatology doctor

Post surgery physiotherapy in spinal conditions

Spine surgery is one of the most complex medical acts, its results depending largely on the post-operative recovery process, which is beneficial for a much faster and more efficient healing.

The goals of the physiotherapist are:

  • Pain control after surgery.

The first step in the recovery process is pain control, which depends primarily on the degree of pain felt and tolerated by the patient (exercises are much harder to perform in the presence of severe pain). Thus, you can combat or minimize these pains in the following ways:

  1. Cold local applications or cryotherapy: our clinic has the most advanced cryotherapy device, Zimmer Cryo 6.
  2. Electrotherapy: involves the use of electricity to stimulate the tissues, in order to cure various diseases or recover certain lost body functions. Centrokinetic has several high-performance electrotherapy devices, among which we mention: Soleo SonoStim and Puls Pro Zimmer.
  3. Tecar therapy: the effect is immediate and is given by the analgesic effect of high frequency electrotherapy, combined with therapeutic massage and active therapy.

Equally important in the control of postoperative pain are the gait or certain analgesic positions, as well as the position during sleep.


  • Recovery adapted to your needs with social, professional and family integration

Each recovery protocol is individualized and adapted to each patient, as well as to his pathology and needs. The physiotherapist of our clinic will focus primarily on muscle mass, the exercises you perform are primarily intended to regain your muscle mass and strength. These exercises will focus on:

  • Muscles in the area of surgery;
  • Muscles affected preoperatively;
  • Small muscle groups that act on each vertebra and are particularly important in stabilizing the spine.

In the Centrokinetic clinic, we are specializing in numerous recovery techniques useful in postoperative recovery of spinal disorders: Dynamic taping, manual therapy, Graston technique, Leuko tape.

Physiotherapist Cornel Dragoi says that: "Any surgery in the field of spinal disorders must be followed by a correct and complete recovery, absolutely necessary for a satisfactory end result".

Recovery exercises after surgery

Exercises are vital to feeling better after surgery. They represent the key element in eliminating the state of fatigue, in the social and professional reintegration, in the resumption of sports activities in safe conditions and in the prevention of injuries.

Thus, Centrokinetic specialists propose maintenance and education programs after such a surgery, meant to prevent or minimize subsequent episodes of pain. These programs involve performing 2-3 maintenance sessions per week, during which periodic reassessments of the patient are performed.

Patients often ask when they can return to certain activities after surgery. However, the answer depends very much on the way they respond to the exercises and on the seriousness with which they follow the programs through which they prepare their muscles, so as to protect their spine during these activities.



Because in our clinic every treatment is based on a diagnosis and is done under medical supervision.
