This could include rehabilitation after sprains, strains, post fracture and pre-or post orthopaedic surgery. The areas of the body include the neck and back as well the extremities.

  • Current mobility with or without walking aids

  • Review of activities of daily living

 

What will happen after the assessment?

The orthopaedic physiotherapist will discuss their findings with you in relation to your condition and how these impact on your quality of life.  Treatment plans and appropriate goals will then be agreed with you.

  • Range of movement exercises

  • Strengthening exercises

  • Mobility practice (with an appropriate walking aid if required)
