Post Surgery Physiotherapy
Having surgery whether planned or as a result of an emergency can place the body under a lot of stress and leave stiffness in joints, weaking of muscles, tightness of muscles and reduce your fitness. Physiotherapy after surgery helps with all of these problems as well as work hard to return you to the activities you want get back to doing as quickly as possible.
What is the role of the physiotherapist after surgery?
Once undergone surgery you need a physiotherapist who is experienced providing rehab to people who have had the same surgery. This is where we can help as we have physiotherapists who specialise in rehab after surgery and can see people at home at locations throughout Singapore. Our post surgery therapists aim to arm you with the tools to rehabilitate after surgery.
When should I start physiotherapy?
To be honest if you have planned surgery it is worth seeing a physiotherapist before hand who can start you working on any weaknesses or tightness you may have before and this will then make you in a better position to recover quicker from surgery as soon as its done. Once surgery has been carried out physiotherapy should start as soon as possible to achieve the best recovery.

Our physiotherapists will carry out an thorough assessment to begin with and them develop a recovery programme to match your requirements. This programme can include a number of different treatments such as:
