Pre and Post Operative Rehabilitation
Pre and Post Operative Care in the UK
If you’ve been advised to undergo surgery, but your doctor suggests pre-surgery therapy, Physio2Home is here to guide you through the process. Research indicates that enhancing range of motion and strength before surgery contributes to a smoother post-operative recovery. Muscle memory, a vital aspect, involves educating the muscles before surgery to improve neuromuscular connections and decrease recovery time.
Preparation for Hip or Knee Replacement
If you’re facing a hip or knee replacement, studies suggest that a few pre-operative physiotherapy sessions can offer patient education, training on post-operative assistive devices, recovery planning, and expectation management. Physio2Home aims to reduce the post-operative therapy needed by providing therapy before total joint replacement surgery.
Physio2Home - Post-Operative Rehabilitation
Are you in the recovery phase post-surgery? Physio2Home is here to support you through the journey. Following surgery, muscles often “shut off” due to joint swelling, impacting neuromuscular connections. Our goal is to swiftly decrease joint swelling and re-establish these connections, ensuring optimal muscle function. Improving range of motion is crucial for maintaining proper biomechanical function of joints and surrounding tissue.
Goals of Post-Operative Recovery
Physio2Home’s post-operative rehabilitation aims to:
- Decrease localized inflammation and swelling.
- Alleviate pain and discomfort.
- Enhance range of motion in surrounding tissue and joints.
- Re-establish neuromuscular connections and promote proper joint biomechanics.
