When can I resume my workout routine after the hand reconstructive surgery?

During your follow-up appointment, your doctor will tell you when it’s safe to resume your typical activities.

Your surgeon will let you know when it’s safe to return to your workout routine following hand reconstruction surgery. To resume this type of activity, your hand needs full recovery, especially if you practice a sport that puts strain on your hands.

Don’t engage in activities that cause you pain or discomfort right after the surgery. Give your body time to heal and focus on your therapy to speed up the recovery process.
