Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

Post-surgical rehabilitation is required following all manner of procedures, including cardiac, respiratory, neurological or orthopaedic surgery. All types of surgery can produce various challenges for the patient, which can be effectively met by using numerous therapeutic measures. These particular challenges can include:

  • Cardiac/thoracic surgery - pain, reduced exercise levels, breathing difficulties, reduced mobility, postural problems
  • Respiratory- pain, breathing difficulties, continence problems, reduced mobility.
  • Neurological- muscle weakness and fatigue, breathing difficulties, reduced mobility, muscle shortening, reduced sensation
  • Orthopaedic- pain, muscle weakness, reduced joint and muscle flexibility, postural problems, swelling, balance and coordination issues

Why is post-surgical rehabilitation important?

Post-surgical rehabilitation is instrumental in long-term recovery for all individuals. For professional sportsmen or women, who rely on sport to earn a living, rehabilitation can be the difference between career success and retirement. For those whose goals focus more on purely leading a fully functional and healthy lifestyle, rehabilitation is just as important. An effective rehabilitation programme can speed up recovery, enhance performance, increase quality of life and prevent the recurrence of injuries/ailments in the future.
