Post-operative Physio

Surgery is always something we would all like to avoid, but when it becomes an unavoidable option, our physiotherapists are on-hand to provide the guidance and rehabilitation that will make the most of your surgical outcome. After all, post-op success is only as good as your post-op rehabilitation.

The Physio Lounge work closely with a team of orthopaedic surgeons, who specialise in a range of many surgical procedures. Our relationships have been built up through our mutual care of professional athletes and members of the public alike, and our aim is to achieve the very best possible outcome when surgery is the only resolution.

Whether you are recovering from a minor knee procedure, complete shoulder reconstruction, or complex spinal surgery, our therapists have extensive experience and are on-hand to facilitate your recovery and get you back into action. Our services include:

  • Specific post-operative rehabilitation plans
  • High quality hands-on treatment
  • Guidance in achieving your goals, whether it is a return to sport, or work
  • On-going communication with your surgeon

Our reviews

When I was booking an appointment on the phone, the person was very friendly and made sure I was booked in as soon as was possible. Subsequent alterations of booked appointments have been dealt with quickly and queries answered straight away. The initial assessment by Craig felt thorough and he made sure that all possibilities were explored for the cause of my knee pain, not just going on my my description of the symptoms. Also he took his time in explaining why I was getting knee pain and the importance of how all the muscles work together in your leg, it was an education. Also my exercise programme was very quickly put together which is easily accessible from the handy app. Overall I am very satisfied with my initial assessment.
The entire team at Physio Lounge provided a Very professional service through out from the very first contact with the administrative staff for booking the session (Kirsty and Izzy) and then a very professional clinical consultation with Craig who was really interested to get to understand my symptoms followed by a thorough clinical examination and thereafter the hands on therapy . He demonstrated and then asked me to demonstrate that I am following the therapeutic exercises appropriately which was then followed by a video of demonstration of the exercises that he emailed over to me to reinforce the exercise technique is correctly followed. I felt that Craig and his team provided me with a truly professional, non rushed ,dedicated service with patient care at the centre of the practice which has become a rarity these days .
"I only had 3 visits and I was impressed with the booking system and the app rather than paper exercises I’ve had on previous physio visits. When it was evident I wasn’t getting any better Tom arranged for further tests with an orthopaedic consultant and I was diagnosed and x-rayed within the week.
Thomas was an excellent, professional and friendly physio and I enjoyed the sessions and I have been left with some good exercises to carry on with.
Great first session with Craig today. You can't believe how one session can change your life with 2 years pain . Highly recommend.
Excellent, professional service, treatment plan for home on the app is excellent would highly recommend.
