If you are planning for surgery or recently had one, you probably have many questions on what you should or shouldn’t do. It is normal after the surgery to feel sore. The soreness usually lasts for 4 weeks, at times longer. If you have been actively working out pre-surgery, it might be quite difficult for you to go back to your extreme exercise routine right away.
Yoga can be a good start. It will help your body get used to the changes slowly. It is also beneficial in stretching out your sore muscles.
Everyone’s recovery is different, and every form of activity or exercise has its own risks. Listen to your body and respect the healing process. Personalized advice from yoga instructors or medical professionals is a great way to ensure you’re on the right path. Always consult Evita’s staff if you have concerns about your recovery.
If it hurts, don’t do it (a little soreness is OK, pain is not).
Don’t over exert yourself, but don’t be a slug.
Don’t hurry, but keep going.
