Post Surgical Care is physical rehabilitation that supports recent treatment, in particular surgical, and helps you return to everyday life.

Common reasons for surgery are:

  • Achilles tendon repair
  • ACL reconstruction
  • Replacement of the hip joint
  • Knee replacement
  • Ligament reconstruction
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Spine surgery
  • Tendon repairs
  • Torn meniscus

However, there are many different types of damage, and this list is not complete.

At ProSynergy Physical Therapy we will carry out a full assessment of your physical functions. All this is done through constant contact with the surgeon.

In the early phase of rehabilitation after surgery, we will focus on reducing pain and swelling, while regaining range of motion. We will use manual techniques such as soft tissue mobilization, gentle stretching and modality as needed. Depending on the operation, the next phase of rehabilitation involves gradual loading of the healing joint and surrounding tissues, as well as restoring normal biomechanics. This includes strengthening the surrounding muscles, balance and proprioceptive training. Finally, once you demonstrate the right strength and biomechanics, we can introduce light plyometry and include sports enhancement. You will feel strong and confident.
