Post Operative Rehab Physiotherapy in Peterborough and Stamford
Post operative physiotherapy aims to restore normal function to the body following surgery. This involves use of treatments including mobilisation, exercise and manual therapy. This can be following elective surgery such as a knee replacement or emergency surgery such as a leg fracture repair. Our physiotherapists have vast experience working with the general population, amateur athletes as well as elite athletes and olympic medal winners. All within our Peterborough and Stamford physiotherapy clinics.
Surgery may result in a variety of symptoms including pain, numbness, swelling, bruising, stiffness or weakness. During your appointment our physiotherapists will establish what structure had been damaged and how badly it was damaged. They will do this by assessing the injured area. This is normally pain free and involves observation, hands on assessment and by performing certain tests. They will then tell you the diagnosis. For surgery it is normal to have reduced movement and strength after the operation.
After the diagnosis and answering any relevant questions you may have, treatment will begin. Treatment is normally pain free and can involve the following:
Manual therapy: This is the fancy term for hands on treatment. Including joint mobilisations or manipulations and soft tissue techniques such as massage. This is important after surgery to regain movement and reduce stiffness.
Exercise rehabilitation: Aiming to strengthen, mobilise, and stretch specific areas. Following surgery exercises may initially be simple and then progressed to move complex movements.
Movement analysis and correction: To improve alignment, adress movement patterns, reduce the load on sensitive tissues, and improve sporting performance.
Education and advice: By giving you additional advice on the injury we can maximise how your body recovers from your injury. It also allows you to understand and take part in your recovery. We will adress any specific goals you have and the best way to achieve them. With certain surgeries you may be unable to do activities such as driving initially.
