There are times when Medical or Physiotherapy treatment may not resolve an injury, in which case you may find yourself under the knife of one of our esteemed local Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Following surgery, it’s recommended that patients participate in a course of Physiotherapy to ensure optimal post-surgical rehabilitation. The duration of treatment depends on individual response to surgery, but is usually 4-10 sessions.
Our physios are very experienced in post-surgical rehabilitation andCaboolture Physical Therapy is, in fact, a preferred provider for a number of reputable, local specialists.
Your initial visit (often two weeks post-surgery) will consist of a functional assessment and usually involves your therapist passively moving the affected area to begin restoring a normal range of motion (ROM). You are likely to be prescribed an exercise program to continue at home to increase ROM, as well as (depending on joint stiffness) a follow-up treatment.
Post-surgical rehabilitation may only require you to follow up with your Physiotherapist at 2-4 weekly intervals for progress assessment and to advance to the next stage of home exercises. Physiotherapy treatment post-surgery will ensure your rehabilitation progresses well, so you can return to normal activities as soon as possible.
