Post Operative Physiotherapy

Upon the completion of your surgery, you will require physical therapy to ensure a healthy and successful outcome. There are no shortcuts on the road to recovery. An appropriate physio care treatment, prescribed and supervised by a physiotherapist, takes time but it is vital to avoid any post operative complications.

Physiotherapy is highly recommended for patients who have undergone the following surgeries:

Why Is Post Surgery Physiotherapy Important?

Lack of movement after an operation can cause a loss of function and muscle weaknesses, inhibiting the quick healing of the soft tissues. Post surgery rehabilitation restores your range of motion, strength and stability, so that you may return to your normal routine as quickly as possible.

Post surgical physiotherapy also helps in managing pain and limiting/eliminating your dependency on painkillers. Other benefits of physio care after your surgery include:

  • Improve blood circulation
  • Improve posture
  • Ease swelling
  • Reduce scar tissue formation

In the hospital, you will be provided with simple exercises to minimise complications such as chest infection or blood clots (DVTs). You may even be prescribed some early strengthening or range of motion exercises. Once discharged, regular follow up is required to monitor your progress.

After surgery, you will certainly require exercise progression to fully regain your strength, flexibility and function. Consulting a physiotherapist experienced in post operative rehabilitation is vital.
