Post operative


Helping to restore normal movement patterns

Surgery is generally the final step in any problem and is only undertaken when more conservative measures such as physiotherapy have failed to produce the desired or optimal result.

From orthopaedic surgeries to abdominal and chest surgery, it is of paramount importance that the patient receives effective rehabilitation in order to maximise the chance of a full recovery. Through working in the NHS and privately, at JD Physio our staff have vast experience in post op rehab, with particular reference to orthopaedic work undertaken, including knee and shoulder arthroscopies, joint replacements, ligament/tendon repairs and Spinal surgery.

Over the past 9 years, we have created links with orthopaedic surgeons in South Wales to ensure a direct patient referral pathway.
