Pre & Post-surgery
Poor musculoskeletal conditioning before orthopaedic surgery, including reduced movement or strength and any evident swelling or muscle atrophy is highly likely to interfere with post-surgical recovery and rehabilitation. Ultimately, the fitter that you are pre-surgery, the more rapidly and better you will recover post-surgery.
Bespoke rehabilitation programmes
PAM Physio Solutions’ experienced, expert rehabilitators will assess individual employee symptoms and functional deficits and the purpose of the planned or undertaken surgery to ensure optimisation of the desired outcomes.
A bespoke programme would be developed and planned, in agreement with the employee and delivered either in groups, 1-2-1 or remotely, depending on the approach that would have the most positive effect for the individual. Programmes target mobility, function and pain reduction through strength and conditioning, flexibility, and movement correction to improve muscle function and joint integrity.
Our focus is to support the employee to achieve the quickest recovery and return to healthy activities and best quality of life as possible.
In addition, we can identify, recommend, and supply appropriate equipment, mobility aids, devices and/or furniture for the employee, and can provide training and instruction on how this specialist equipment should be used.
Post-surgery, the treating Surgeon will have provided advice to the individual regarding how quickly rehabilitation can begin. Waiting lists can be lengthy and session delivery can vary depending on locality and NHS demand. Following proven guidelines of care deigned by the healthcare professions, we will ensure maximal rehabilitation in terms of strength and movement restoration.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Pre & Post-surgery Rehabilitation FAQs
Why is rehabilitation important pre and post-surgery?
The stronger and healthier any person is pre-surgically, the quicker and more easily they will recover from their surgery and rehab post-surgically improves their recovery rate from their surgery.
How long is rehabilitation pre-surgery?
Rehabilitation post-surgically is multifactorial; it depends on the type of surgery, how it actually went, how restricted, fit or healthy someone was before their surgery, and if there were any complications or unexpected outcomes. It is impossible to know how long rehab is expected to take until rehab is initiated. Our role is to ensure that your rehab is delivered as quickly as possible post-surgery to maximise improvement outcomes and reduce any residual or long-term symptoms, getting you back to being as fit as possible, as quickly as possible.
What are the different types of rehabilitation programmes?
Rehabilitation programmes are specific to individual needs and respond to restrictions and barriers to recovery and function that are caused by more complex and potentially chronic musculoskeletal and medial/clinical needs. Therefore, there are countless types of rehabilitation programmes and specialisms. PAM Physio Solutions are lucky enough to have expertise within our team to support the most common of these requirements UK-wide.
