Unfortunately some injuries require surgery, and a good rehabilitation program is a vital part of helping you get the most benefit from your surgery. Rehabilitation can help you recover from surgery as quickly and completely as possible.
There are several ways that a physiotherapist can help get individuals back into good physical condition and heal from the injury and surgery. They can help to reduce pain, improve range of movement and help the muscles to regain strength. Exercise is vital, after any surgery. It is the key to eliminating fatigue, getting patients back to activity safely, and avoiding re-injury. Your physiotherapist will develop an individually tailored exercise program based on knowledge of the injury and surgery.
Your physiotherapist will also guide you with returning to certain activities after your surgery.
