Surgery Rehab Classes

Pre & Post operative rehabilitation classes by Physiotherapist in Adelaide CBD.

Surgery is often the essential treatment of choice for chronic conditions (e.g: advanced knee, hip arthritis or degenerative spinal conditions) or trauma (injuries sustained after accidents, fractures, etc.). Full recovery from certain surgeries can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. In complex conditions this duration can be longer and the process of recovery can be slower. Thus the quality of normal life and work of a person undergoing a surgery is often affected, sometimes even after the surgery is successful. Sometimes people never regain their full physical capacity and function and they suffer from ongoing aches and pains.

Research has frequently shown that people undergoing surgery have much better chances of full recovery and reducing their pain when they undertake targeted rehabilitation.

A post surgical exercise program designed by a physiotherapist for a specific condition is usually much more effective than a generic program. A personalised physio-led exercise program can also help people prepare for surgery by strengthening the right muscles, which can reduce the need for a long post-surgical rehabilitation. Leading spinal surgeons and orthopaedic doctors in Adelaide acknowledge and promote physio-run pre & post surgical rehabilitation classes to improve results for their patients.

At our physiotherapy clinic (situated near the New Calvary Adelaide Hospital and St. Andrew’s Hospital in Adelaide CBD), we offer a supportive environment that focuses on rehabilitation for pre and post-surgical patients. We understand recovery from surgery can be a long and complex process, so we are here to help you through your journey of recovery.

We offer a comprehensive rehab program (incorporating Clinical Pilates and home exercises) tailored to your individual circumstances, goals and needs. Our clients work with Physiotherapists throughout the program, continually reviewing their progress and refining their objectives to get the most out of each session.

Each rehab program is modified for the individual, harnessing a number of different rehabilitation techniques to ensure the therapy is sensitive and sympathetic. Through careful assessment and exercise selection, we strive to improve your functional level, manage your pain and get you back to your activities of daily living.

In our treatment rooms we mobilise the joints and soft tissue, helping to reduce pain and improve recovery times while preventing the formation of scar tissue and expanding your range of movement. Then it’s out into the studio where we offer a range of classes to strengthen your body for life.

We are with you every step of the way: we know the complications which can result from surgery and we understand how patients can lose strength and movement.

Working closely with you, our team can help you rebuild your balance, strength and endurance through guided exercise programmes, which are sculpted with your goals in mind.
