Post Surgical Rehabilitation and return to work programmes
After Surgery patients frequently have poor fitness, strength and range of movement. Post (after) surgical programmes assess patients and prioritise goals to optimise restoration of function, strength and mobility while clearing pain. Each programme is customised for the patient and is regularly reviewed and modified as required. This may include hands-on Physiotherapy as required and or rehabilitation classes (These may be funded by ACC or your Insurance provider) to maximise your recovery.
Return to Work programmes are usually funded by ACC or Insurance Companies to restore strength and function to allow patients to return to work quickly and without risk of re-injury. These programme’s are completed in conjunction with other health professionals (Surgeon, GP and Occupation Therapists) to ensure optimal outcomes.
