Rehabilitation After Surgery

Request Appointment

Rehabilitation is most important following surgery. Movement of the body needs to be restored to its optimum and so specific joints and muscles must be exercised carefully and regularly.

Post-surgical rehabilitation may be needed after a fracture or a joint replacement such as a hip and knee joint, or after spinal surgery.

Physiotherapy treatment may involve:

  • Pain and swelling management
  • A graded home exercise programme to move joints and strengthen muscles involved (core muscle exercises are an important inclusion)
  • Help and advice re activities of daily living
  • An aquatic exercise programme
  • A Pilates exercise programme if appropriate
  • A graded return to usual activity levels/sports.
