Benefits of Post-Operative Physiotherapy at The Brookdale Clinic

Why early treatment is beneficial to your post-operative recovery

Today one of our physiotherapists – Cathie – shares the experience of one of her physiotherapy Cathie Stone - Physiotherapistpatients who self-referred to the clinic a week after having undergone a knee operation.

We’ll call him ‘Jim’.

Jim had undergone surgery for a lateral release (a surgical procedure to release tight structures on the outer or lateral aspect of the kneecap).  The hospital did not offer any immediate follow-up post-operative physiotherapy and very little advice was given as to how he should progress or how he could expect to feel after surgery.

Back pain treated at The Brookdale Clinic

Living with a pain in the back?!

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) have put together this useful little video to help you manage some of those niggling pains yourself, either before or inbetween your physiotherapy appointments.

“I’ve got this terrible pain in my back…”

We see it all too often and if you are reading this and thinking ‘yes this is me’ then don’t worry – you are not alone!

It’s thought that 98% of back pain cases are not serious and most cases will clear up in due course.  Try to keep moving, stay in work where possible and resume your normal activities even though it might be a little uncomfortable.  However, if you are in constant or excessive pain, then booking an appointment to see one of our physiotherapists, sooner rather than later, will ensure that you are checked out properly and given the right treatment plan to get you back to full health quickly.

Contact us on 01565 651832 to make your appointment today.
