Senior physio Jess Norton has a special interest here at Physiologic in post-op rehab. She wants to share with you 3 steps for post surgery and how we can help you.
(1) Goal setting: Surgery is the easy part, all the work is done for you – you now need to make sure you get the best possible outcome by committing to a set of goals. Whether its to run a 10km race, get back to playing soccer, or to be able to work each week without pain, its important to set yourself goals. We will make sure we manage your rehab by structuring your program specifically to achieving your goals.
(2) Break it down: Our clinicians will break your rehab into short term, mid term and long term treatment. For example short term will be aimed at reducing swelling and regaining range of motion, while long term treatment will be more strength focused aiming to get you back to running or in full health for an upcoming holiday (depending on what goals you have set). We will help guide you through each phase and prevent any ongoing complications.
(3) The hard work begins: The process doesn’t end with surgery. As we said earlier, surgery is the easy part- its the rehab afterwards where you will need to commit and put in the effort to make sure you get your optimal outcomes. We will outline and progress rehab exercises for you to start after surgery and its important that you complete these if you want to achieve your goals.
