Different injuries respond to different treatments. Some injuries will require surgery immediately whereas some injuries may require surgery after all other treatments have been tried. If this is the case, physiotherapy can be very effective before and after injury treatment.
Physiotherapy can be used to strengthen areas of the body so that the body is better prepared for surgery and will take less time to recover after the procedure. It is also used after surgery to improve the range of movement where the surgery took place and to strengthen surrounding muscles. The main goal is to return the patient to as near full function as possible and for the patient to reach their full potential.
At Tyrrell Physiotherapy, Swords, Co. Dublin our specialised physiotherapists can rehabilitate patients following their surgery.Book an appointment
