Todays joint replacement procedures are advanced & common place. Rehabiliation protocols match in technique & aim to provide accelerated outcomes with patients generally returning fully to all previous activities of daily life.
Expectation setting & early intervention are key in achieivng good results & a return to your normal daily life.
Whether Hip, Knee or Shoulder our team will guide you through the earliest to final phases of your rehabiltation with targeted objectives & a caring hand.
Todays replacements are functionally orientated & afford good expectations for each patient. Working together with our team will optimise your ability to achieve a good level of functionality & enhanced quality of life.
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
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.
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 &
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.
