We aim to return our patients to optimal strength, function and mobility after surgery. We are specialists in rehabilitation, both pre and post-surgery and have the knowledge and skills to help speed up your recovery. 

Following surgery, recovery can feel like it’s taking a long time, which can be frustrating. Focused treatment and the right corrective exercises can significantly reduce your recovery time. Rehabilitation varies according to the type of surgery, but it usually involves a graduated strengthening program, with specific hands-on treatments when necessary, to restore joint mobility and muscle flexibility.

We have extensive experience rehabilitating people from a variety of surgical procedures. We work closely with your surgeon to develop an individual treatment plan with specific goals, for pre and post-surgery. We help you return to, and in many cases improve, your pre-surgery strength and fitness, getting you back to normal life with improved function as soon as possible

Sports Injuries

Whatever type or level of athleticism you have we can help you improve your performance or help you get back to your sport following injury.

Our experienced physiotherapists are experts in assessing and treating sports injuries. They help patients maintain, develop and restore movement and functional ability, by giving treatment and advice to ensure:  

  • Prevention: A detailed understanding of your sport and your medical history enables your physio to design strategies to reduce the risk of sustaining injury 
  • Restoration/ Recovery: Clinical evaluation, diagnosis and a detailed treatment plan are completed according to your individual athletic goals
  • Enhancement of Performance: Individualised exercise programs are developed to enhance your physical capacity
  • Advisory Capacity: Your physiotherapist can work with your coach if required.

Home Visits

If you or a family member needs physiotherapy, but cannot make it into the practice, we can visit you at home. Your rehabilitation may be easier and more convenient, if a physio comes to see you, especially if you have lost your confidence with mobility, or are experiencing pain in your back or joints. In the early stages, following surgery, the operated area may be stiff or swollen, and pain levels can be high, so walking can be difficult. 

While you may not be able to change the fact that you need an operation, you can choose to ensure the best outcome, by organising physiotherapy at your home. Home visits will guide and supervise your early recovery, which can make a big difference to your long-term health and wellbeing.

Our experienced, Chartered Physiotherapists will check on your progress, ease any worries or concerns, help you to set realistic goals, and personalise a treatment plan to your needs.

Your physiotherapy rehabilitation programme can include: 

  • Advice and education about your surgical procedure
  • Exercise prescription
  • Walking pattern re-education
  • Walking aid progression
  • Outdoor mobility progression
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Improved confidence
