After you have been treated for your condition, we want to ensure that you heal properly and regain strength. Our rehabilitation team will work with you in a private setting, at your own pace and comfort level, so that you can return to your daily lifestyle. Through exercises and training, our certified physiotherapy team is here to help you get back to the things you love.
In order to achieve the best results, it is essential that you communicate effectively with your doctors and nurses to choose the method of pain control that will work best for you. We would like to make your hospital stay as comfortable as possible. The amount or type of pain you feel may not be the same as the pain that another patient might feel, even for those patients who may have had the same operation.
To maximize the benefits of pain control, you need to work with your doctors and nurses by informing them of your pain. They will ask you to rate your pain on a scale of 0 to 10 – with zero indicating no pain and ten being the worst imaginable pain. Your nurses will be asking you for your comfort goal. It is unrealistic for certain situations (surgery and certain diseases) to expect that you will have no pain. We would like to have your pain at a level where you are able to walk and perform your breathing exercises.
Reporting your pain as a number helps the doctors and nurses know how well your treatment is working and whether it is necessary to make any changes. You may also choose to use descriptors, like mild, moderate, or severe.
