Pre and Post Operative Rehabilitation

Surgery is generally the final option taken in any problem when conservative measures have not had the desired effect or when there is a structural problem that will not improve without surgical intervention. 

Research has shown that physiotherapy has a place both before and after surgery and that surgical outcomes are actually better with physiotherapy than without. This is an important factor to consider when deciding on surgery. Recovery from surgery requires lots of motivation and dedication to acheive your goals which may be to increase functional performance/ability or to have reduced pain. 

In most cases, an orthopaedic surgeon will ensure you have had a consulation with a physiotherapist prior to undergoing surgery. Here at 4front Physiotherapy we contact your surgeon before and after your surgery to ensure you are recieving the best possible care and to educate you on outcomes and time scales of rehabilitation for once you have had surgery. We use the most up to date evidence based rehabilitation protocols to help optimise your progression both pre and post op.

It is helpful to assess you prior to your surgery so we can advise of of the rehabilitation protocol for immediately post surgery but this is not essential. Not all health settings that provide your surgery will have post op physiotherapy as standard so be sure to establish this with your surgeon in your pre operative assessment with them. 

We are proud to be one of the few private physiotherapy providers in East Sussex that has incorperated new evidence based protocols for exercise therapy post surgery as well as prescribing the newest technology in slinting and csting which has been proven to reduce post surgical recovery time and better functional outcomes.
