In many cases, surgery is just the beginning of the recovery process; physio rehab after surgery is vital in order to optimise the speed and success of your recovery.
At Mid West Physiotherapy, Limerick, our expert team of chartered physiotherapists are highly skilled and experienced in treating post-operative patients. Examples of surgeries which require post-surgical rehabilitation include:
- Fracture repairs
- Spinal surgery
- ACL surgery
- Knee arthroscopy
- Shoulder reconstruction
- Rotator cuff repair
- Hip/knee replacement
We can also help patients with reconditioning after general surgeries.
We will work closely with your surgeon to ensure that your rehabilitation programme is suitable for you. Depending on the type of surgery and your own particular requirements, your programme may involve manual therapy, mobilisation, rehabilitation, strengthening, exercises and education. Thorough post-surgical rehabilitation will maximise the benefits of your surgery and get you back doing what you enjoy as quickly as possible.
Here is a helpful fact-sheet from the UK Chartered Society of Physiotherapists with tips, guidance and evidence on the general topic of rehabilitation.
