Palms Physiotherapy are experts at providing rehabilitation for patients following a wide variety of different surgeries. We provide pre and post-operative treatment and rehabiliation. We have long standing relationships with many surgeons, allowing us to keep up-to-date with modern surgical techniques and procedures to ensure your optimal recovery.
The success of your recovery from surgery is not just dependent on the surgery alone, but also on your pre and post-surgical rehabilitation.
WHAT IS PRE-OPERATIVE PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Pre-operative physiotherapy helps to prepare patients for upcoming treatments and surgeries, thereby reducing the risks and complications during surgery and accelerate recovery. We can prepare your body to be as strong as it can be and ready for your upcoming surgery, this can be through a combination of hands on treatment, exercise rehabilitation and home exercise programs.
WHAT IS POST OPERATIVE PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Post-operative physiotherapy is the post-surgical program following discharge from hospital, for re-establishing muscular strength and joint function. Our Physiotherapists will perform a comprehensive assessment, outlining a detailed treatment plan which takes the patient and surgeon’s goals into account. The treatment plan will be a combination of hands-on technique, and guided exercise programmes in the gym, or as home exercises that will improve range of motion, coordination and strength, so that you can return to your work, sport and normal functioning.
