We offer both pre and post surgical orthopaedic rehabilitation
At Body and Mind Physiotherapy we specialise in assisting our patients to return to optimal strength, function and mobility after surgery. We begin this process before your surgery (prehab) as this makes a big impact on your recovery after your operation.
The road to recovery can be long following surgical procedures, however with focused treatment and exercise, patients can reduce recovery time significantly. Rehabilitation is different for each surgery, but normally involves a graduated strengthening program, and specific hands-on techniques to restore correct joint mobility and muscle flexibility.
Working closely with your surgeon we develop focused individual treatment plans and practical goals that aim to restore a normal life and, in most cases, improve your level of pre-surgery strength and fitness.
At Body and Mind Physiotherapy we have extensive experience rehabilitating people from a variety of surgical procedures. Below is a list of common surgeries we see (this is not exhaustive).
What People Say
I have nothing but the highest praise for Ben. He prepared me for my total knee replacement, supported me through it and helped me afterwards.
I was up and about after two weeks without my crutches much to the total surprise of my surgeon. He noted that this was the quickest recovery of all knee replacements he had done.
He was so impressed, he now recommends Ben to all his patients.
Besides being one of the best in his field, Ben has always impressed me by thinking outside of the box. His empathy and kindness are a key part of his treatment of each patient as a unique individual.
I have had the privilege to work with Ben over the last five years or so and he has been instrumental in helping with the prehabilitation, immediate postop and long-term follow-up particularly of my lower limb arthroplasty patients.
His diligent and committed approach to rehabilitation has made a big difference to my outcomes and also perhaps as important the patients really like and engage with him which has made life easier for everybody.”
