After most surgical procedures or fractures, there is an initial period of immobilization, which is necessary to allow proper healing. This often results in muscle weakness and joint stiffness, leading to altered function.

The aim of rehabilitation is to regain (where possible) near to normal range of movement, strength, balance and proprioception, thereby achieving a return to near normal function.

Treatment may involve any of: mobilisation, massage, stretching, strengthening exercises, balance exercises, hydrotherapy, gym programme, clinical pilates, advice and guidance with return to sport or work.

In some instances of significant fracture/surgery, a return to completely normal function is not possible. Always discuss aims and expectations with your physiotherapist.

If you have undergone surgery or if you have suffered a fracture of some sort, please call us to discuss how we can help you to return to as near-to-normal function as possible
