Pre & post op physio
Two members of The Physiotherapy Academy team have previously worked in major trauma hospitals gaining a wealth of experience in post-operative rehabilitation. Additionally one of our physiotherapists works as an extended scope physiotherapist with a specialism in Orthopaedics.
Physiotherapy intervention can be invaluable both before and after orthopaedic surgery. It may be beneficial to see a physiotherapist before your operation to advise on what to expect following surgery and to get you in the best possible shape to achieve the aims of the surgery. This may include a pre-operative exercise programme to optimise strength and ensure a smooth speedy recovery.
The Physiotherapy Academy offers individualised and specialised physiotherapy treatment following surgery. We follow the guidelines issued by your Consultant and regularly liaise with them during your recovery. Post-surgery rehabilitation helps relieve pain, increase range of motion, improve mobility, optimise muscle strength and improve quality of life. A graduated treatment programme will be jointly agreed between you and your physiotherapist to aid return to normal activities and hobbies as soon as possible. For longer-term rehabilitation we have access to the necessary gym equipment and sports facilities to carry out sport specific rehabilitation.
