Surgery affects everyone differently depending on age, but complications can affect all. Even physical therapy (PT) at times can be harsh on people, more so with age. For assisted ambulation, look no further than us for your in-home health aide agencies in West Palm Beach.
Despite how many people have surgery and go through physical therapy, many still take longer to recovery and risk hampered movement due to inactivity afterward. One of the best ways to improve your condition is to walk it off.
Ambulation, or walking without any assistance, is taken for granted by many worldwide. However, it really shouldn’t be as accidents can result in paralysis. We care deeply about your ambulation goal and will be for you to lean on along the way, whether it’s walking or rolling, we are here to make sure you can do it.
People often stay bed-ridden or sitting for longer than necessary when they are trying to recover. This leads to many adverse side effects such as weakness, gas buildup, and even constipation. To avoid these, all you need to do is exercise. In addition to preventing those side effects, ambulation has several benefits, including:
Muscles are among the first parts of your body to suffer after surgery. Muscles need to be used, or they atrophy. Muscle atrophy is the condition where muscles waste away, leading to weakness and difficulty walking.
On average, men over 30 experience up to 5% muscle loss per decade as they age. This roughly equates to a total loss of about 30% throughout their lifetime. Pair that with the loss after surgery, and the percentage only climbs.
Surgery leads to muscle loss at an exacerbated rate due to it triggering the release of cortisol. Cortisol is said to bind itself to muscle receptors, therefore leading to muscle deterioration. A better way of combating this, rather than using testosterone injections, is by ambulation with home aides.
Everyone’s goal and timeline are different, but we will be there each step of the way. Our mission is to assist you to the state you were in before surgery. Ambulation does not necessarily mean exercise, as it can including walking, sitting, or standing. In essence, this is a safe way of keeping you out of bed after surgery.
