Post Operative Rehabilitation

Post operative rehabilitation:

The team will take time to thoroughly assess your condition following your surgery. This will involve analysing your function and range of joint motion, strength and levels of pain. As well as a thorough physical examination, our individual therapists like to take into considerations your previous levels of function, sporting abilities and activities so that we can tailor an individualised programme to help you meet your rehabilitation goals.

Our personalised approach to care is designed to help achieve excellent outcomes. The Progress team are aware that each person’s rehabilitation after surgery is a different experience and everybody has different goals to strive for.

The frequency of outpatient physiotherapy following your surgery depends on the type of surgery you have had and you therapist will discuss this with you. This could mean that the team would strive to see you on a regular basis, often weekly or more in the earlier stages, if need be to make sure that your rehabilitation is progressing well and that the programme is meeting your needs.

Your physiotherapist will be in close communication with your surgeon following your surgery, this is important to aid rehabilitation and to ensure that your recovery back to full health and fitness is as smooth as possible.
