We have practices in Abington, Moulton and the St James area of Northampton
Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation
The process of healing can start in earnest after surgery is complete. The patient’s treatment in the hours days and weeks immediately post surgery is vitally important to ensure a good outcome and physiotherapy effectively bridges the gap between surgery and full recovery.
Physiotherapy can be used post surgery, post injury, for pre-surgical conditioning and for general pain management. It helps manage pain, maintains and rebuilds muscle mass, improves mobility and joint function, can improve strength and balance, aids with weight control and overall improves general quality of life.
We are able to provide rehabilitation to both in-patients and out-patients. Treatments offered include massage, heat and cold therapy, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and development of home exercise plans. The cat in picture 2 is undergoing neuromuscular electrical nerve stimulation this is helps to promote muscle mass in regions of atrophy, in this case sciatic nerve damage sustained during pelvic trauma sustained in a road traffic accident. The dog in picture 1 is on a Swiss Ball, which is used as an aid to support weight bearing and allow balancing in the post operative period.
