Treatment Before and After Surgery               

What is it?

At the Physiotherapy Clinic we believe that it is important to prepare you mentally as well as physically for surgery.  Treatment will therefore consist of educating        you about your up-coming surgery so you know what to expect and after surgery restoring joint movement, muscle strength and any limb swelling. You will be treated by the same physiotherapist pre- and post operatively, implementing the rehabilitation protocols set by your surgeon.


How does it work?

Pre-operative treatment is beneficial because as a rule, the better you are before surgery, the better you will be after surgery.  If you have good muscle strength beforehand it is easier to regain movement and further  improve strength afterwards.

Post-operatively, you and your physiotherapist will work on a progressive programme of manual therapy and exercise to enable you to return to sport or normal activities as quickly and safely as possible.  Exercise rehabilitation is a key component to the effective management of your care.  In conjunction with the 1:1 treatment sessions with your physiotherapist, we actively promote the self-management of your condition through home exercise programmes.

 

What conditions is it used for?
