Pre & Post-Operative Rehab

Pre & Post-Operative Rehab

Pre and Post-Operative Rehabilitation` is a process that not only helps to rehabilitate a patient post-surgery but also helps to prepare them physically for surgery.

Preoperative Rehabilitation
There are a plethora of benefits to a structured pre-operative or “pre-habilitation” program. A Preoperative Rehabilitation programme is designed by your physical therapists to aid your body before surgery to improve the chances of a positive outcome. A Preoperative Rehabilitation programme can also help to prepare you mentally for surgery.

Post Operative Rehabilitation
Patients often undergo Post Operative Rehabilitation programmes following surgery on the hip, knee, shoulder, wrist, hand, neck, foot, ankle, and spine to help assist a speedy recovery. By following a structured rehabilitation plan, patients are often able to strengthen their bodies in ways that facilitate a not only quicker than average but also full recovery. Post Operative Rehabilitation often includes physiotherapy treatments and muscle manipulation.

Surgery is often the final step in a treatment cycle if more conservative methods such as physiotherapy, and muscular manipulations don’t bring the desired results. Although surgery can often seem daunting, when combined with a well-structured pre and post-operative rehabilitation plan, it can help restore standard function in the affected area of the body. Here at CBR Clinics, we are experts in both preparing patients for surgery, and rehabilitating them afterwards.

Your First Rehabilitation Treatment

Pre-Operative Rehabilitation Treatments
At CBR Clinics we specialise in the care you need after your surgery, as well as the precautions you need to take before surgery. Your first preoperative session will begin with an initial assessment of your condition before our expert physiotherapists start to work alongside your surgeon to ensure the best possible, and most effective results for you.

Post-Operative Rehabilitation Treatments

Once you have undergone surgery, our experts will then assess your injury (post-op) to determine the most effective treatments methods. From here a rehabilitation plan will be agreed with you and regular appointments scheduled to monitor your progress continually. During these sessions, your rehabilitation plan will be tweaked to reflect the progress of your rehabilitation.

What our clients say…

3 doctors mis-diagnosed me with RSI (including a private hand ‘expert’)… CBR diagnosed me correctly as having neck issues before I even arrived – just from my description of symptoms… I just hope I remember to go to a Physio first before a doctor when I next get pains in my joints.

My visit to Bruno are really effective on my back right on the same day. He is a great profesional as well as a really warm person to deal. He make you feel calm and relaxed at the consultation. I have recovered strength on my arm thanks to his treatments. I will definitely recommend anyone to go to his clinic.

Maria A.

Peter was very professional! He identified my problem area, gave me excellent advice and exercise to do. I left feeling very positive, will definitely recommend him to people.

C. Cole

I have been treated by Silvia for a shoulder pain. She is an amazing osteopath, very profesional, knowledgeable and a nice person. Silvia is very easy going and explains things extremely clearly.I have been back a few times since and always had fantastic results. I cant recommend CBR Clinic highly enough. Thank you Silvia for making my shoulder much better!

Natalie H

I have been having treatment at CBR Clinics for over 3 months now and I can honestly say that it is one of the best investments in myself I have made. I have had a bad back for a long period which stems from lots of sport and the office job. After seeing Lyndsy Mills my back has recovered and mornings tend to be much easier 🙂 I would recommend to friends, family and work colleagues.

James B.

A very professional team and detail-minded treatment, which provides patient a comprehensive approach for speedy recovery. Reasonable price and nice follow-up. Highly recommended to any Londoners or the tourists.

V. Man

Really good support throughout the 3 weeks of physio. Great selection of take-home exercises and advice that helped me recover and get back to playing sport a good week before I thought I’d be able to. Would definitely recommend to anyone who’s looking for top quality treatment.

M. Batstone

Bruno & his team are professional, efficient, knowledgeable in a number of different disciplines, treatment was effective and Bruno charming. The clinic’s location is very convenient being directly opposite Waterloo station. Disabled parking is availabe in street behind the clinic.

Patricia P.

I’ve been going to CBR for a few years now and have been treated by three of their staff in that time – all great, especially Bruno. I love the fact you can book online and they’re open late most nights and around on thr weekend too. My current treatment is under Nick who specialises in headaches from which I suffer, not just treating the pain but trying to get me to a position where I don’t have to visit too often. How many osteos do that?
