Common tendon / muscle repairs such as Rotator cuff, Achilles or Patella tendon reconstructions require controlled, phased increases in movement, loading of forces

& nerve-muscle coordination

re-education.

Tendonal repairs do not uncommonly involve resulting restrictions in length & / or function. Physiotherapy is often essential in returning these structures to their fullest potential.

Early intervention to monitor & protect repaired ligaments & tendon grafts  is important. Managing post-operative inflamation plus pain levels as also controlling the level of allowed stresses on the repair areas are early objectives. 

Progressive rehabiltation requires a scope of Physiotherapy expertise ranging from Manual Therapy through to Sports Physiotherapy on requirement.

Spinal Surgery
Cartalige Repairs / Replacements

There are many levels / types of orthopaedic & neural specialised spinal surgery ranging from simple injections or key hole disc trimms to extensive disc replacement or metal / synthetic implants.

The human spine is a complicated &

multi-functional 

structure with sub-divisions in area & functionality emphasis. 

Varying exercise , manual therapy & education techniques are combined to produce targeted results.

Significant spinal conditions often involve nerve tissue issues (e.g. Sciatic Nerve problems) & a sound experience & expertise is required to address these in a clinical & effective manner. 

Exercise prescriptive knowledge beyond the normal fitness training spectrum is required to attain healthy spinal function through strength, coordination & economy of movement (e.g. a sound core strength).

Medicine is moving forward at a rapid pace in regards to cartalige treatments.

Repairs are common place, however, replacement techniques are continually being revised & refined.

There are many types of joint surface conditions ranging from impingements to surface erosion & tears.

These types of conditions affect people across all age groups. 

Protocols for these types of surgery on the lower limbs often require weight bearing & torsion dosages, which are controlled & implemented by your guided therapy & exercise regime.

Variations in repair and replacement techniques require knowledge & experience which affords you, the patient, with optimised outcomes.
