Post-Operative Physiotherapy

The success of orthopaedic surgery depends on what you do post operatively. Often, if not managed carefully with the help of a physiotherapist, you can continue to experience ongoing problems with stiffness, pain, swelling and general lack of confidence with the limb. In the early stages our therapists help you to regain movement, decrease swelling and strengthen the muscles around the joint. We will advise you on how and when you can return to normal activities including sport. You will be given an exercise programme designed to guide you back to your pre-operative activity.
