Pre-operative Physiotherapie

When conservative measures such as physiotherapy have failed to produce the desired result, your physician could recommend surgery.

Many operative procedures benefit from having you at your very best or strongest prior to the surgery. Knowing what to expect after surgery can help enormously with your post-operative rehabilitation. Here are ways Physiotherapie can benefit you:

  • learning how to use assistive devices (for example crutches)
  • performing exercises increase your overall strength
  • practicing simple tasks of getting out of bed (for example after hip surgery)
  • instructing family members as to how they can be most effective in assisting you

Post-operative Physiotherapy

A major part of a successful recovery following surgical procedures is good physiotherapy treatment. These include:  (but are not limited to)

  • strengthening weakened and disused muscles
  • restoring joint mobility
  • compensation for any functional loss
  • restoring normal movement patterns and habits
  • return to activities of daily living
  • possible return to employment

I work closely with the surgical team (Impuls, Schulthess, Balgrist and Clinics, Wetzikon and Uster Hospitals to name a few) following established protocols

Types of surgical procedures (most common)

  • Shoulder surgery– arthroscopy, tendon or ligament repairs, decompressions, joint replacement, fracture management, acromioclavicular joint repair
  • Hip– arthroscopy, labral repair, joint replacement, fracture management
  • Knee– ligament, cartilage or tendon repair, arthroscopy, joint replacement, fracture management
  • Spinal– fusion, stabilisation, discectomy
  • Ankle– arthroscopy, ligament repair, joint replacement, fracture care
  • Foot– bunion and toe surgery, fracture management
  • Cancer care- Mastectomy, bone resection
