Children may undergo surgery for various reasons and many children require a period of rehabilitation post-surgery to assist return to previous levels of function and activities. Children may experience pain, swelling, muscle weakness, reduced exercise tolerance, reduced mobility and reduced confidence post surgery, problems which are usually treatable with physiotherapy.

How can physiotherapy help after surgery?

Our specialist paediatric physiotherapists will carry out a thorough assessment of a child's problems following surgery and establish an individual treatment programme which may include:
  • Advice regarding pain relieving techniques
  • Techniques to reduce swelling e.g. ice
  • Exercises to improve range of movement and muscle strength
  • Gait re-education to improve mobility and independence
  • Exercises to improve balance and coordination
  • Exercises to improve exercise tolerance and overall fitness
  • Advice regarding return to previous activities and hobbies
  • Advice to parents on handling and caring for their child post-surgery
  • Hydrotherapy to improve weight-bearing, mobility, balance, range of movement and strength and reduce pain
In some cases physiotherapy may be useful pre-surgery in order to maximise a child's fitness levels and muscle strength which may help the recovery process.
