Post Surgery

Post Surgery Therapy

Post surgery recovery can be a very traumatic event, both psychologically and physically. It can place the body under tremendous stress and can leave muscles weakened. That’s why it is often necessary to undergo some post surgery physiotherapy.

The aim of post surgery therapy is to help the muscles recover their strength and range of movement, which are often restricted during and after the surgery itself. This will bring the body back to the level movement and capability that it had before the operation.

Post surgery rehabilitation takes many forms, and can be used for both minor surgery and major operations.

The role of the post surgery therapist

Our post surgery therapists aim to arm you with the tools to rehabilitate after surgery. This will include a number of methods, utilising the extensive knowledge base of the therapist to help you regain full movement, reduce swelling and restore tissue mobility.

It could involve re-learning how to walk or use a limb, or simply to recover full movement, strength and fitness. The ultimate goal is to restore pre surgery levels of movement and comfort.
