After undergoing a surgical operation for a musculoskeletal condition, you will almost always need some form of ongoing treatment and physiotherapy rehabilitation to produce long term results.
Your surgeon is able to repair tissues and structures but guided and graduated rehabilitation with a physiotherapist greatly assists to reduce pain, restore motion and improve everyday functioning. Therefore, your surgeon will likely recommend a physiotherapist for ongoing care.
Our physiotherapy team have extensive experience and relationships working with a range of leading orthopaedic surgeons in Melbourne. It is important to note that you do not always need to utilise the physiotherapist your surgeon referred. Our team are experienced in a wide range of post-operative care. You can be assured that we will communicate openly with your GP and surgeon and can be in contact with you and even observe in the theatre.
Common procedures that require post-operative care:
- ACL repairs
- Total knee and hip replacements
- Shoulder operations – including rotator cuff repairs and stabilisation procedures
- Carpel tunnel decompression
- Achilles tendon repairs
- Arthroscopic surgery
Our team know that this period can be difficult. We are a compassionate team that will help you to feel comfortable and safe, and we will make sure you meet your goals as quickly as possible.
