Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy plays an important role in rehabilitation post-surgery to help reduce pain, swelling and stiffness, and to guide you on an individualised rehabilitation program for a quicker, stronger recovery. It is also important to rehab under the guidance of a physiotherapist to avoid developing compensatory movements such as a limp following surgery of the leg, which may result in problems with other parts of the body such as the lower back.

Our Physiotherapists are also trained in pre-operative physiotherapy, if time allows, to help strengthen and prepare the problematic area before surgery in order to increase the rate of recovery post-op and reduce the risk of complications.
