This includes joint replacement surgery, reconstructions of the knee/shoulder/hip joint and tendon tissue repair and many other conditions in between.
Back and neck injuries are among the most difficult to fully recover from, often taking people months, if not years to reach their full physical levels of fitness and health. Whether you are recovering from a bulging disc, surgery, sciatica, or chronic pain and flexibility issues we know exactly what you’re going through.
Sporting or work related injuries
Overuse and repetitive injuries are on the rise; did you know that tennis elbow is now more likely to be suffered by a computer programmer than a tennis player? Our physiotherapists are experts in identifying, treating and rehabilitating all kinds of injuries such as stress fractures, overuse injuries, sprains, muscle tears and strains.
Injuries resulting from car accidents and other random events often leave a lasting and painful reminder. Our gym rehabilitation programs have been used by people recovering from complex fractures, broken bones and even acquired brain injuries.
WHY PREHAB IS IMPORTANT FOR IMPROVING RECOVERY AFTER SURGERY
Pre-surgical rehabilitation or prehab for short is the concept that’s going to get your body into the best shape it can be in before your surgery. Better in, better out. A well designed pre surgery body strengthening regime can shave weeks of time and pain off your post-surgical recovery. In fact, the physical shape your affected area is in is one of the strongest predictors of the chances of a fully successful recovery. It is likely that you have pain and weakness operating in tandem leading up to surgery, but you’re going to need every ounce of strength you’ve got to recover fully. In prehab your local physio will help you build strength and stability where you need it most to ensure you get the most out of your rehabilitation.
