Pre and Post-Surgery Rehabilitation

optimise the healing and recovery process with post-operative rehabilitation
 
Following a major injury, you may require surgery and this can have a limiting effect on your lifestyle and activities. Surgical rehabilitation refers to the recovery process that you will embark on either immediately before or directly after surgery.

Rehabilitation refers to Physiotherapy intervention before surgery. This can help speed up recovery and minimise any complications after surgery.

The overall goal of post-operative rehabilitation is to optimise the healing and recovery process and enable full return to functional activities of daily life including sports.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy has a long history in cultures around the world. Depending on the application and techniques used, massage is beneficial in treating sports injuries and other problems affecting the musculature of the body such as postural misalignment and many painful conditions.

Sports Massage helps to recover after sports training and optimises your performance. This massage utilises medium to hard pressure focusing on muscular releases and stretches.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a technique used to gently work and stimulate the lymphatic system, to assist in reduction of localised swelling. The lymphatic system is a network of slow moving vessels in the body that carries cellular waste toward the heart, to be filtered and removed. Lymph also carries lymphocytes, and other immune system agents. Manual lymphatic drainage claims to improve waste removal and immune function.

A massage can be part of the Physiotherapy treatment or can be booked separately.
