Post-operative care

Post-operative care relates to any problem associated with bones, joints or soft tissue, including muscles / tendons or ligaments, in any part of your body that has required surgery.

At Spire Portsmouth Hospital, we assess and treat patients following many different types of surgery, eg, 'key-hole’ (arthroscopic) surgery, joint replacements, spinal surgery and ligament repair, eg, ACL repairs.

Within Spire Physiotherapy we offer a comprehensive assessment of your needs both prior to and following your surgery, ensuring you are supported all the way. We offer advice and treatment on post-operative swelling, pain control and returning your operated joint back to full movement and strength. We can re-educate your gait (walking) with the appropriate walking aid if necessary. Usually a comprehensive exercise programme will be devised, taught and progressed, tailored specifically to you and your stage of rehabilitation.

We work and liaise very closely with the specialist orthopaedic consultants at Spire Portsmouth Hospital, which gives our patients an unprecedented level of care.

All physiotherapists at Spire Portsmouth Hospital are registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). Find out more about our Spire Physiotherapy team.
