Orthopedic rehabilitation can be made easier at a recovery retreat. Here, all you need to worry about is resting, healing, and following your doctor’s instructions.
After your orthopedic surgery, you will go through the process of recovery. What your recovery looks like will depend on your health before your surgery, exactly which type of procedure you had, which medications you are on, and the support that you receive after your surgery. Many patients find that rehabilitating at a wellness center like Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness gives them the priceless gift of a smooth recovery. Learn more about the benefits of spending some time at our recovery retreat during your orthopedic rehabilitation.
Peace, Quiet, and Pampering
During orthopedic rehabilitation, one of the factors that can decrease your recovery time is the amount of rest you get. If you live alone or with just one other quiet person, then you might be able to get enough rest at home. If, however, you have a family filled with children, teenagers, babies, and/or pets, then it is likely that you are going to have to work hard to rest and relax during the day, and having to work at it defeats the purpose. A quiet, soothing environment like you’d find at our wellness retreat goes a long way toward helping you get the rest you need.
Even if you do have a quiet, restful place to recover at home, you might not have someone available to bring you your meals, help you get more comfortable in bed, get you a glass of water, or help you in the bathroom right when you need it. Having this type of pampering is difficult to achieve in the home, but at a wellness retreat, it’s par for the course. At Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness, you have a full staff available to help you as needed.
Professional Nursing Staff
After your surgery and during orthopedic rehabilitation, it’s natural to have worries and concerns. Is your surgical site healing the way it should be? What is this new pain on the other side of your body? Is it normal to have a headache, or is it a side effect of the medication you’re taking? Maybe you feel a bit anxious and your heart rate is up, which is making you feel even more anxious. Having a dedicated professional nursing staff right outside your door gives you someone to ask these questions to. You can feel secure knowing that you are being monitored and that if something is amiss, a medical professional will be aware of it right away.
In addition, having nurses nearby means that you will not make any mistakes with your medication; even if you normally would not have this issue, being on painkillers can make you less likely to remember exactly when your last dose was. Nurses can also get into quick contact with your doctor if needed. If you were recovering at home, you would need to wait on hold or for someone to call you back while you sat and worried. At Pearl Recovery Retreat, help is just down the hall.
Types of Orthopedic Rehabilitation Therapies
When you are recovering from orthopedic surgery, you might benefit from a range of alternative services in addition to your regular medical therapies. At Pearl Recovery Retreat, we have quite a few options for you to choose from, including:
- Hyperbaric therapy: You’ll be able to sit back and relax while breathing in 100 percent oxygen. This increases your rate of healing, reduces pain and discomfort, and can even minimize scarring.
- IV vitamin therapy: Infusions of vitamin C, zinc, and other nutrients can help speed your healing and reduce your chances of developing complications. Your medical staff will determine the right blend of nutrients and vitamins that you need. Your vitamins will depend on your unique circumstances and condition.
- Juice cleanses: We offer a variety of juice cleanses for both before and after your orthopedic surgery. These are a combination of bone broths as well as juices made from fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
Delicious, Nutritious Meals
Recovering at home during orthopedic rehabilitation can entail weeks of prep when it comes to your food. You might be making casseroles and other foods that are easy to freeze. Or maybe you will need to depend on friends and family members to bring you your meals. Even when meals are fully prepared, you will still need to put your food on a plate, get yourself set up with silverware, and then wash the dishes afterward. This is neither a relaxing nor the best way to recover from your surgery.
Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness offers chef-designed meals that are perfect for your recovery from your orthopedic surgery. When you arrive, you’ll be offered soups and soft snacks to help your body transition to eating after fasting for your surgery. As your appetite gets back to normal, you’ll enjoy in-room dining based on your specific nutritional needs. We offer you foods that are bursting with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein to help you get back to normal as soon as possible.
In addition, we can work with your dietary needs. If you are vegetarian or vegan or if you eat only kosher foods, that is no problem. Let us know of any allergies or intolerances, and we will be sure that your food is safe for you. Best of all, there are no dirty dishes to worry about; our staff handles all of the cleanup so you can get back to resting. When it comes to eating during orthopedic rehabilitation, trust the professionals.
Transportation and Other Details Taken Care Of
Finally, at Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness, we handle the details of getting you to and from the wellness center. You’ll have transportation from your surgical center to the retreat, and then we can take you back to the surgical center the next day for any needed evaluations.
In addition, we make sure that your dressings are changed as needed, that you get your medication on time and in the correct dosage, and that you have assistance with bathing and dressing as needed. We keep your room clean and dust-free and make your bed for you.
All you need to worry about is resting, healing, and following your doctor’s instructions, which makes your recovery from your orthopedic surgery much quicker and easier than it would be if you were on your own.
