Post-operative Rehabilitation

All orthopaedic surgery requires rehabilitation to assist the recovery from surgery to appropriately guide and progress activity levels without compromising the surgery just undertaken. Post-operatively, there is often pain and swelling and these must be controlled immediately to minimise any inhibition of surrounding muscles and therefore prevent compensatory muscle and biomechanical activities developing. Your sports physiotherapist works in conjunction with your surgeon’s wishes to ensure a safe and appropriate return to activity. Your treatment will involve swelling and pain management strategies, biomechanical retraining, strengthening and ultimately a return to your chosen activity.
