The benefits of rehabilitation and pain management are wide ranging. Many of us are guilty of thinking that slowing down or losing the desire to exercise is an inevitable consequence of ageing. However, conditions such as osteoarthritis do not have to mean fewer or shorter walks and loss of fitness. With the appropriate treatment, pain scores can be reduced, mobility can be improved and quality of life can be restored. Often small changes can allow our older patients to regain an active and happy existence.
Rehabilitation can also be of benefit in our patients that have undergone surgery. Not only can it help with a quicker recovery but it should also improve overall outcomes and return to full athletic activity.
Some of the conditions we commonly treat include:
Cruciate ligament injury
Bicep and achilles tendon injuries
Chronic musculoskeletal Pain
Rehabilitation can improve recovery following surgery for:
Spinal disease and injury
