Frequently Asked Questions

What is post-operative care?

Postoperative care is the care that people receive after they have been through a surgical procedure. Its specific elements will depend on the individual being looked after and on the type of surgery that’s been performed. It addresses any potential side effects that the person’s treatment and medication may have. It can include wound care and pain management. Physiotherapy is often used as part of post-operative care to build strength and mobility, which can be lost after surgery or after prolonged periods of inactivity.

Why is physiotherapy part of your post-op care?

Physiotherapy can be incredibly effective at helping people heal and get stronger more quickly and more safely. Physiotherapy can help promote fast and effective recovery from many sorts of injuries. For example, if someone has a fractured hip then physiotherapy can help the person move the joint in a way that produces the least amount of pain and improves the mobility of the joint in the fastest and safest way possible.
