Post Operative Rehabilitation
Re-establish muscle strength, joint motion and function
People planning to undergo a surgical operation can participate in preoperative rehabilitation programmes as a possible way to regain strength more quickly and optimise post-operative recovery.
It is important for the body to heal after an operation. A specifically designed post surgical rehabilitation program can improve the way you feel after surgery by promoting the healing process, scar tissue formation and by addressing post surgical pain. Physical therapists understand the different stages of healing and know how to develop a treatment plan that re-establishes muscle strength, regain range of motion and flexibility of the joint speeding up the recovery so you can return to your active lifestyle.
Pre & post operative rehabilitation can help with:
- Knee ligament surgery
- Achilles tendon reconstruction
- Shoulder stabilisation
- Lumbar spine discectomy
- Ankle ligament reconstruction
- Hip replacement & surgery
