We believe that physiotherapy after surgery is a superb way to maximise your recovery. The team at Cairnhill Physio specialise in post-op rehabilitation (as well as pre-op preparation) and we can devise an exercise programme to strengthen and mobilise any affected joints and muscles. While the operation itself is obviously very important, we think that what you do afterwards is just as crucial. That is why we strongly recommend that you come to us for post-op rehab and enjoy all of these benefits as a result:
Don’t rely on the surgical procedure alone to get you back to 100%. A dedicated spell of physio is a natural complement to surgery in many cases. For example, the muscles surrounding the operation site often become tight after the surgery has been completed. This can lead to a build-up of scar tissue and joint stiffness. Our post-op rehabilitation can break down scar tissue which will let you move freely and mobilise your joints. And by prescribing exercise programmes we can help you regain mobility, flexibility and strength so you can get back to enjoying your favourite activities.
As we’ve already mentioned, we also carry out pre-op preparation. This is another vital service as many surgeries can only happen once an injury has gained a certain level of muscle strength. Working in conjunction with your specialist, we can build your strength prior to surgery which will let the procedure happen in the first place while allowing you to get the most out of your post-op rehabilitation as well.
We’re here for you before and after surgery. Contact us and we’ll get you ready for your operation, and just as prepared to get back to normal once it’s done.
