About

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of a structured exercise program on musculoskeletal pain of patients in face-down posture after retinal surgery.

All patients are going be admitted to the hospital prior to the surgery. After the surgery is done, the patients are going to maintain a face-down position in the ward until postoperative day 3. After returning to the ward after surgery and completed the pain scoring forms, exercise training is going to be conducted for patients assigned to the exercise group by a physical therapist. Three times of daily self-exercise sessions are going to be performed according to the training provided to the patients. Pain score will be measured on the first, second and the third postoperative days. Patients will be discharged on the third postoperative days.
