Physio Rehab After Surgery

Physio Rehab after your surgery will now be led by Physiotherapists (James and Mike) that will help guide your strengthening exercises and provide massage to reduce swelling and bruising. Physio rehab after surgery has been proven to improve the recovery process and is highlighted in this literature review. We are excited to offer, free of charge, a new anti flamme cream, with natural arnica to help reduce any inflammation after that surgery. What does that mean? Well if you have had any of the following surgeries:

Surgeries may include:

  • Debridement of muscle or bone fracture
  • Repair of ankle fracture (bimalleolar)
  • Widening of syndesmosis repair
  • Repair of ankle fracture (Fibula) – outside of ankle
  • Arthroscopy
  • Meniscectomy
  • Chondroplasty

What Do We Assess?

The Physio will ask you a lot of questions to get a really good idea of what you have been through. They will then start to examine your body, including:

What is Rehabilitation Physio?

Orthopedic physiotherapy is a specialised type of physical therapy focused on preventing, assessing, and treating musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. Our experienced orthopedic physiotherapists offer personalised treatment plans to help patients recover from conditions such as fractures, replacements, arthritis, and chronic pain. Our goal is to help patients rehabilitate and achieve optimal recovery and return to their daily activities as quickly and safely as possible. You can find more information here on what makes a good physio.

Rehab Techniques Used by Our Physios:

Pain management is a crucial aspect of Physio rehab after surgery. Our physiotherapists will work with patients to manage their pain through a combination of techniques, including walking aids or slings, manual therapy, exercise, ice and massage. 

Regaining range of motion and strengthening the affected area are key components of rehabilitation after orthopedic surgery. Our physiotherapists will develop an exercise program tailored to each patient’s specific needs and abilities and will gradually progress the program as the patient’s strength and mobility improve. This plan will take into account the type of surgery, the patient’s medical history, and their current physical condition. Our team will work closely with the patient’s surgeon to ensure that our treatment plan is aligned with their recovery goals. 

Balance and proprioception training are important to prevent falls and to help patients regain their confidence in their ability to move safely. Our physiotherapists will incorporate specific exercises to improve balance and proprioception (where in space) in the affected area.

We believe that educating patients about their condition and providing them with the tools they need to continue their recovery at home is essential to achieving a successful outcome. Our physiotherapists will provide patients with a customized home exercise program (online so you can take home with Physiapp) to support their recovery outside of our clinic.

The Goal of Physio Rehab

Full range of movement, strength and normal movement patterns so you can return to exactly the way you were before your onset of joint pain!
