Post-Operative Physiotherapy Singapore
For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp 96402670
Eventhough we usually try to be more conservative and try to recommend patients for physiotherapy to see if physiotherapy can help prevent the need of surgical intervention, but we also appreciate the necessity of surgical interventions for medically-required and elective surgery.
Post-surgery, it is highly recommended that you or your loved ones see our specialist physiotherapists and rehab team to get back to 100% after an operation.
It is very clinically and research-proven that post-operative physiotherapy decreases downtime, speeds up discharge, experience less stiffness and pain, experience fuller/full range and strength.
Post-Operative Physiotherapy Treatment
Patients are very highly recommended to attend and receive physiotherapy intervention for physical rehabilitation following
- a keyhole surgery on their knees, back and shoulders
- after joint replacements in their knees, or hips
- or after an operation to insert metal plates or pins into different bones and joints
What our specialist physiotherapists will do is that they will help you to regain muscle strength and movement, as well as joint flexibility so that you can return to normal movement and function as soon as you can.
They will also teach and show you how to use crutches to walk, go up and down stairs, and ensure that you can perform basic movement safely and competently such as standing up, sitting down and moving around without compromising the injury and surgical repairs.
You or your loved ones should continue to see the specialist physiotherapist until you have full function, movement and power post operationally. Our specialist physiotherapists work with many orthopedic surgeons in Singapore and are happy to refer patients where we find and believe surgery is appropriate.
Post-Operative Physiotherapy - Our Expertise
If surgery is medically recommended (such as shoulder repair, back surgery etc) it is medically advisable to strengthen the muscles around the joint before the
date of surgery because pre-surgical physiotherapy is clinically proven to speed up the recovery time after surgery.
To add to that, Physiotherapy treatments are often prescribed and provided after the surgery to help decrease stiffness and pain and accelerate in returning patients to complete independence and a more active lifestyle.
Acupuncture and/or dry needling is also of great benefit in many of these situations, to help control pain post-surgery.
