Physiotherapy plays a significant role in preparing patients for surgery as it ensures their joint range and muscle power is as good as possible before the surgical procedure. This helps to maximise post-surgical outcomes.
Physiotherapy exercises are particularly important before hip or knee replacement surgery and also following Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
Following surgery it is essential that Physiotherapy programmes are tailored to the patients needs and agreed with the specialist who has carried out the surgery to get the maximum post operative outcomes.
I have included numerous Physiotherapy post operative programmes on this website that I use following various surgical procedures.
