Surgery can be a daunting prospect and it’s not just the surgery itself but the recovery and rehabilitation process that can shape post-operative outcomes. At Fit and Flow Physiotherapy we work with patients both before and after their surgeries, helping them optimise their recovery and rehabilitation.
In the pre-operative phase, we work with patients to reduce swelling and pain and increase range of motion and strength. We want them to be in the best possible position before undergoing their surgery. We help them to understand the surgery and a timeline for recovery, we then work with patients individually to set specific goals for their rehabilitation.
In the post-operative phase, we utilise specific manual therapy and hands-on treatment along with exercise therapy to maximise outcomes. We work closely with the surgeon to implement post-operative protocols and where necessary apply up-to-date rehabilitation and strength & conditioning principles to progress a patient’s program to meet individual goals.
We are experienced in the rehabilitation of both elective and emergency (trauma) surgery including but not limited to, joint replacement, arthroscopes, ligament reconstruction, muscle repairs and fracture surgical fixation.
If you have a specific question about your upcoming operation and the rehabilitation process please feel free to enter it in the Injury Form and we will endeavour to get back to you.
