Surgery is the first step – completing post-operative rehab with your physiotherapist will give you the outcome you’re seeking
The surgery is now completed and it’s time to regain your strength, flexibility and function. Post-surgery you may have been given a few exercises by a Physiotherapist in hospital or by your surgeon to get you started. However, in order to gain a complete recovery, you will need to undergo some more extensive rehabilitation. At City Physiotherapy, we see many patients following their surgeries and help them get back to leading active and pain-free lives. If getting back to sport is your goal we will work with you to achieve your goals with carefully guided rehab exercises and Physiotherapy treatment and management.

- SHOULDER: Shoulder reconstruction, stabilisation, rotator cuff repair, fractures, bursal debridement

At City Physiotherapy Adelaide, our physiotherapists will provide you with individually tailored rehab. We have an on-site rehabilitation gym and Pilates studio and our physiotherapists can also work out a gym programme for you in our Goodlife Gymnasium clinic at 81 King William Street.
Our Physiotherapists can provide pre-operative physio as well as post-operative treatment to minimise your pain. Our post-operative physio care will also give you strategies to prevent future injuries being sustained. You don’t need a Dr’s referral to start postoperative physiotherapy rehab. However, we can correspond with your surgeon and GP about your progress and management.
