Post Operative Rehabilitation

At Southside Physio, we understand that the success of your recovery is not just dependent on your surgery, but also on your post-operative rehabilitation. You need expert care and support in order to achieve full and sustained results. 

Our highly experienced physiotherapists understand the mechanics of your orthopaedic surgery and will work in consultation with your specialist to ensure that your rehabilitation program is customised to your particular needs.

We can assist you with post-operative rehabilitation for the following areas:

  • Spine
  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Ankle
  • Foot

Recovery from an injury or surgery can often be difficult when painful joints and muscles have to take the full body weight. Southside Physio offers aquatic physiotherapy in a warm water environment where reduced body weight makes it possible to perform exercises, strengthen muscles and move joints with less pain. When you are able to tolerate full weight bearing exercise again, we can also offer you further strengthening options in our fully equipped gym.

Sometimes your orthopaedic surgeon may recommend that you undertake strengthening exercise prior to surgery to assist with your post-operative recovery. Our physiotherapists are trained to be able to support you with this aspect of your rehabilitation as well. 

At Southside Physio, we can offer the full range of both pre- and post-operative rehabilitation services to suit your needs. Please contact one of our friendly receptionists to discuss your particular circumstances.
