Home Hazards to Avoid After Foot Surgery
Undergoing foot surgery, no matter if it’s for bunion removal or a broken ankle, requires a unique recovery process due to limited mobility. Recovering at home can be difficult and often requires the aid or assistance of another individual to make accomplishing even the most mundane day-to-day tasks possible. However, family members or friends may not be fully equipped for the rather serious task of helping a loved one during foot surgery recovery. For example, family members might not have the strength to assist the patient to and from the bathroom. Instead of struggling to recuperate while simultaneously juggling busy work schedules, childcare, and the responsibilities of daily life, consider seeking help from the professional staff at Pearl Recovery Retreat.
How Re-Injury Occurs
Here are some examples of simple ways re-injury can happen that you might otherwise have overlooked:
- Getting up to use the restroom
- Cooking or maintaining the cleanliness of your home
- Going to buy groceries
- Showering or bathing
- Picking your kids up from school
Surgery is often an overwhelming, if unavoidable, task. Why not spend the time it takes to recuperate after surgery relaxing in a spa-like atmosphere, away from the obligations of every day life? Pearl Recovery Retreat has created a suite of orthopedic surgery recovery services, which provide assistance for taking pain management medications, showering and using the restroom, meals, exercise routines and much more.
Not only is assistance available 24/7, the amenities themselves provide a serene atmosphere so that patients can focus 100% of their attention on the personal recovery process. Showers at Pearl Recovery Retreat are equipped with custom freestanding bathtubs. Gourmet meals are prepared by on sight by chef Jose Andres, providing a balanced diet that will further ensure a speedy recovery. Meals are served in-room and can be ordered from a room service menu so that patients don’t even have to get out of bed. In addition, each room is equipped with a 40” high-definition flatscreen television as well as high speed Internet for entertainment purposes.

Forcing recuperation from foot surgery to occur faster than is truly possible significantly increases the risk of re-injury. Many adults feel a sense of pressure within their own homes to continue daily routines. Watching dishes pile up, or needing to use the restroom when no one is at home to help you, makes recovery unpleasant. In order to take time away from all responsibility, aside from recovery, contact Pearl Recovery Retreat today either online or by phone at (310) 736-1009.
