After planned surgery it is essential to get the right help to achieve the best possible outcome. TraumaPhysio rehabilitation programmes help people recover quickly from planned surgical procedures such as joint replacement, reconstructive surgery, joint fusion, manipulation under anaesthetic and surgical repair.

Whilst there is often a standardised protocol for a surgical procedure, it can sometimes be unclear to be people what they should and shouldn’t be doing to help their recovery.

Quick recovery after planned surgery

It can feel overwhelming to begin the process of rehabilitation when returning home after planned surgery. Our home visit appointments are arranged for a specific time that is convenient to you, so you won’t need to travel, arrange transport or wait for hours in a waiting room.

It’s important that your Physio has a full understanding of the surgical procedure and the impact that this has had on you so that they can plan a rehab programme that enables progress in the most meaningful areas to you. You can therefore expect a comprehensive assessment including advice and recommendations to enable you to take positive steps in managing your rehab.

Pain and swelling can be difficult to manage, and this can lead to slower than expected progress in recovering movement and mobility. TraumaPhysio treatment programmes will likely include a combination of advice, hands on treatment, technology and exercise prescription to ensure the best possible outcome.

Helen worked with my 88 year old Mum following her knee replacement. I was very very impressed. Personable, knowledgeable, supportive, she got my Mum full mobilised and back playing bowls. She had her operation in November 2018 and was she was back playing bowls in January 2019. My Mum has now had a refurbishment of her replacement hip and I have no hesitation in going back to her and recommending her to others.

An inner ear problem last July that developed into vestibular neuritis led to problems with the muscles, nerves and joints in my neck which caused nausea, dizziness, vision problems as well as the usual aches and pain. In February I came to the Physio4 You team in despair. Rachel did a thorough vestibular assessment and was able to reassure me that the vestibular problem was resolved. I was then given Helen’s details for the neck issues. She has been a real Godsend. She is calm, friendly, reassuring and professional. After a thorough exam in which she listened carefully to my history of symptoms, she took time to explain what the problem was and a plan for treatment going forward. This problem has caused me real anxiety at times. She set my mind at rest that I will get better. I am still undergoing treatment but there has been a vast improvement. She takes time to answer all my questions and I always leave feeling so positive. I would thoroughly recommend their services
