At North Notts Physiotherapy i provide both pre and post surgery rehabilitation. Whether you are about to have planned elective surgery such as a knee or hip replacement or you have had to undergo an unplanned operation such as emergency stomach surgery or repair of a fractured neck of femur, i can help. I can provide pre and post surgery rehabilitation for a range of conditions including the following.

  • Joint replacement surgery including hip, knee and shoulder replacements
  • Orthopaedic trauma surgery such as repair of a bone fracture
  • Spinal surgery
  • Stomach or bowel surgery
  • Hernia repair

Pre-Operative physiotherapy

Evidence has shown the benefits of pre operative physiotherapy prior to orthopaedic surgery. Having a tailored pre op exercise programme to maintain function strength and range of movement can ensure a better recovery process.

Post-Operative Physiotherapy

Post surgical rehabilitation can play an important role in your recovery process. It can take some time to get back on your feet following surgery, it can often put the body under enormous stress and can leave muscles weakened. This is why it is often necessary to undergo some post surgery physiotherapy.

You want to be sure you are doing the right exercises at the right time and in the right way.
