Pain after surgery may have other causes.

You may have back pain because of how you were lying on the surgical table. Throat pain is common after general anesthesia because the breathing tube can cause irritation. Some pain is caused by tissue damage and can affect muscle, bone, skin and organs. Although pain after surgery is normal, it is not normal for the pain to set back your recovery or to become chronic. Active Health works to create a personalized treatment program for you. We might include treatments including physical therapy, biofeedback, therapeutic ultrasound, psychotherapy, massage therapy, nutritional counseling and spinal cord stimulation. The specific treatments you need for postsurgical pain depend on the nature of your condition and its location.
