Pre & Post Operative Rehabilitation

Surgery is generally the final step for any problem and is only undertaken when conservative measures such as physiotherapy have failed to produce the desired or optimal result.

Before recommending surgery, Orthopaedic surgeons usually ensure that their clients have received a comprehensive physiotherapy assessment and treatment.

Post Operative Rehabilitation

A major determinant in a successful outcome of a surgery is good physiotherapy treatment with the following objectives

  • restoring optimal mobility
  • strengthening weakened and disused muscles
  • compensation for functional loss
  • restoring normal movement patterns

Orthopaedic Procedures

Orthopaedic Procedures

We are happy to see clients before and after orthopaedic procedures such as:

  • Shoulder surgery – arthroscopy, tendon or ligament repairs, decompressions, joint replacement, fracture management, acromioclavicular joint repair
  • Hip – arthroscopy, labral repair, joint replacement, injection
  • Knee – ligament, cartilage or tendon repair, arthroscopy, injection, joint replacement
  • Spinal – fusions, stabilisations, discectomy, injections
  • Ankle – arthroscopy, ligament repair, joint replacement
  • Foot – bunion and toe surgery, fracture management

It is often helpful to see us before your surgery to ensure that you are familiar with what exercises you will be doing immediately post-surgery. We can also assess what your movement and requirements are that can help with goal-setting for your post-surgery rehabilitation.

Many operative procedures benefit from having you at your very best or strongest prior to the surgery as much as possible and can help enormously with your post-operative rehabilitation.

If you have any queries regarding your specific planned procedure and whether we can help you please call to speak to one of our team.
