Pre and Post-operative Rehabilitation and Surgery Prevention
Getting your body ready before and after an operation
We know surgery isn’t high on your wish list but we also know you need to move freely. The right physiotherapy can get you ready for surgery, or even help you avoid it altogether.
At Progressive Physiotherapy Group we believe rehabilitation is the key to a successful outcome.
We work with you to:
- get you ready for surgery
- rehabilitate you after surgery
- avoid surgery, where possible
Pre-habilitation and avoiding surgery
You wouldn’t run a marathon without a little training, right?
It’s the same when you need an operation. You need to prepare your body for what’s ahead and the demands it’s going to face.
If you have surgery booked, or are considering an operation, we’ll have a chat about your goals. If one of those goals is to avoid surgery, then you’re talking our language! You’ll be surprised how physiotherapy can get you functioning properly again without the need for surgery.
We love teaching you how to move and function again, from carrying your shopping bags to competing at an elite level.
When surgery is unavoidable it’s important that you still have the same range of movement after the operation.
We’ll work with you before you go into hospital to make sure your body is prepared for the treatment. At that stage we can talk to you about what to expect after the operation and explain how tailored exercises and classes can aid your recovery.
We work with all post-operative clients. The most common are:
- Knee reconstructions
- Hip and knee replacements
- ACL reconstructions
- Spinal surgery
- Disc surgery
