Post Surgical Rehabilitation in Melton

Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Unfortunately the success of your surgery doesn't finish the moment you leave the operating theatre. Your surgeon will have skillfully performed a surgical procedure that is the initial step towards your successful outcome. However, you'll have to do some work in the form of exercises to optimise your results. In hospital you'll be provided with simple exercises to minimise complications such as chest infection or DVT's. You may even be prescribed some early strengthening or range of motion exercises. Once you are discharged, you'll commonly require re-assessment and checking of your progress.

Post-orthopaedic surgery, you'll almost certainly require exercise progression to fully regain your strength, flexibility and function. The quickest, safest and easiest way to return to your day to day activities is by consulting an Osteopath experienced in post-operative rehabilitation.

At OsteoRehab, we'll happily assist you in your post-operative care. We are familiar with the treatment protocols prescribed by most Orthopaedic Surgeons in Melbourne. We'll happily liaise with your surgeon to determine any specific requirements based on your individual surgery.

At OsteoRehab we'll work with you to develop a tailor made rehabilitation program to ensure you make the best possible recovery in the quickest time.

Whatever your needs, we'll get you back to your work, sport or day to day activities ASAP.

If you have been a surgical patient, it is not necessary to obtain a referral from your specialist to return to post-operative Osteopathy.

However, it is always beneficial to inform your surgeon that you would like to return for post-operative care at OsteoRehab.

You can make an appointment with OsteoRehab at any stage. We recommend contacting us 8 weeks prior to your surgery to prepare by optimising joint flexibility, stability and strength. Most research is showing us that the better prepared you are, the better your outcomes post surgery.
