Post operative Rehabilitation

Service information

Physiotherapy is usually recommended following orthopaedic surgery to help you regain strength, flexibility and the optimum functioning of the area treated. Physiotherapy will help you recover as quickly as possible so you can return to your daily activities and also help you avoid further complications. Common conditions which benefit from post-operative care include knee and hip surgery, shoulder surgery, elbow, wrist and hand surgery, neck and back surgery, ankle and foot surgery and Achilles tendon repairs. You do not need to be referred by your hospital specialist but we will usually communicate with your doctor to keep them informed of your progress.
