Post Op Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation
POST OP PHYSIOTHERAPY CONTRIBUTES TO THE SUCCESS OF SURGERY
The success of your surgery depends largely on what you do after the operation (post operative stage).
Often, if the post operative stage after orthopaedic surgery is not managed carefully with the help of a physiotherapist you may continue to experience ongoing problems with stiffness, pain, swelling and general lack of confidence with the site of surgery.
As the area may be swollen and somewhat uncomfortable in the early stages, post op physiotherapy will help you to regain movement, decrease swelling and strengthen the muscles around the joint.
Vibration For Swelling and Circulation
Our experience with Vibration Therapy has dramatically enhanced the recovery times of many surgical proceedures . Knee and hip surgery in particular can benefit hugely.
Vibration To Increase Muscle Mass
Vibration Training after surgery can have huge advantages for muscle gain. It is often not possible to move or exercise in certain ways due to post operative swelling, pain or stiffness. However, the nature of vibration and carefully guided exercises on a vibration platform can overcome the problems associated with post operative muscle gain.
Closely Monitored Home Exercise Programme
We will let you know how and when you can return to normal activities including sport. You will also be given an exercise program that is specifically designed to guide you back to your pre operative activity.
Return To Normal
Your return to normal activity/ sport will depend on the nature of the surgery and the amount of damage that was present.
