“Just thought I would let you know that I had a very successful weeks skiing in Verbier and got back last weekend. Weather fantastic and knee held up very well. Many, many thanks.”
Our orthopaedic physiotherapy team are highly experienced in providing rehabilitation for a wide range of knee issues. Your physiotherapist will work closely with the knee specialists and nursing staff to facilitate your recovery and ensure the highest level of care and guidance are achieved.
Your physiotherapist will assess your current capabilities in terms of strength, range of motion, mobility, and posture as well as find out about your lifestyle and goals following surgery. We will then create a tailor made rehabilitation programme based on your condition and the type of knee surgery that you have received.
The inpatient stay is often only the beginning of your recovery from surgery and further physiotherapy support is needed when you leave hospital to return you to full function. We will be involved in your rehabilitation whether it’s through the experienced outpatient physiotherapy department at the hospital or our associate physiotherapy programme. We will be there to help you fully achieve your goals and be there for you for life.
We will provide you with a comprehensive in-depth guide which gives you a step by step description of your operation, answers a range of related questions and includes illustrations of exercises forming part of your rehabilitation programme.
