Post Operative Physiotherapy

The Benefits of Physiotherapy for Post-Operative Care and Recovery

Physiotherapy is an important part of post-operative care and plays a vital role in helping patients recover from surgery. It involves the use of techniques to help reduce pain, improve mobility, and restore function. Physiotherapists use a variety of tools such as exercise, massage, heat/cold treatments, electrical stimulation, needling and ultrasound to help patients reach their goals. Postoperative rehabilitation helps patients regain strength and range of motion in the affected area while reducing pain and swelling. Physiotherapy can also help with scar management, wound healing, and psychological support during the recovery process.

How to Find the Best Physiotherapist to Help with Post-Operative Care?

After surgery, it is important to get the right post-operative care to ensure that you make a full recovery. Finding the right physiotherapist can be a daunting task, as there are many professionals out there who offer different services and treatments.

Some surgeons will have direct referral agreements with a Physiotherapy clinic nearby & it often feels like you should go to that clinic. However, similar to how when your car is damaged the insurance company has a ‘recommended’ repair shop, you are free to look around & go to your preferred location. The surgeons communicate readily with all Practitioners regarding their post-op care protocols & updates for follow up appointments.
