Pre-/Post Op Physiotherapy
At some point in our lives we may require an operation as a result of a sporting injury, an accident or simply due to normal wear and tear in our joints, ligaments or muscles. Having surgery can be daunting but it can make the world of difference to one’s quality of life.
Hip replacements can give back mobility and independence that would otherwise have been lost; ligament reconstructions can enable a return to sports and hobbies, but it is more than just the surgery that allows this. Without the correct pre- and post-op rehabilitation, the best surgery in the world can end in disappointment as not only will much of the pre-surgery weakness and altered mechanics remain, there will also be additional pain, swelling and compensation as a result of the surgery itself.
In order to the get the desired outcome, all of these factors need to be addressed.

Clinical evidence and our experience show the benefits of exercising before surgery. One of the clinic’s main specialities is rehabilitation following orthopaedic surgery. The physiotherapists at The JSSC are trained and experienced to be able to advise on the most important exercises to do to prepare for surgery.
Having the surgery is only half of the battle. Even the simplest of keyhole surgical procedures is still quite a trauma to the human body and should be followed up with a comprehensive rehabilitation programme. Sadly people are not always referred for physiotherapy routinely, with the unrealistic expectation they will get better on their own.
Post-op rehab is essential for recovery and return to normal daily activities. Our experienced physiotherapists will guide and educate you through the process so that together you can maximise your recovery. You will be provided with a step by step management and rehab plan so that you know what to expect and when to expect it.
