Joints problems can be a common source of pain. The joint may be painful because of injury, wear and tear, stiffness or overuse.
We will persevere to identify whether the problem is with the joint or if it is a structural problem e.g. due to a cartilage, ligament, tendon or surrounding muscle issue.
PRE AND POST-OPERATIVE REHABILITATION
We have an enhanced recover programme in place at the clinic. Physiotherapy has been shown through research to be beneficial both before and after surgery and our programme consists of equipping the patient for their entire operative journey.
Pre-operative care is beneficial as it helps to strengthen the patient prior to surgery and primes joints, muscles, and other soft tissues for the procedure. Preparation prior to surgery will equip the patient for post-operative rehabilitation.
Rehabilitation after your surgery is essential to regain movement, strength and function. Research has shown that patients who receive physiotherapy immediately after their surgery have better outcomes than those who do not have regular physiotherapy after their operation.
Our post-operative care normally begins within days of the procedure and follows the patient through to the final stages of their rehabilitation. We have extensive experience managing patients through total hip and knee replacements, Birmingham hips, ligament reconstruction, rotator cuff and spinal surgery amongst others.
