Post Operative Care


Post-operative rehabilitation is an essential component of recovery following any major or even minor surgery. Individually tailored treatment can help you restore your range of motion, strength, co-ordination, and let you return to your usual activities through a safe and supervised program.

Enhance can help with recovery following a huge variety of procedures including joint replacement, fracture and surgical fixation, ligament repair, tendon repair or spinal surgery for the neck or back.

To help you through post-surgical recovery Enhance will provide:

  • Hands-on treatment to relieve pain and swelling.
  • Exercise programs to restore function and strength after surgery.
  • Home activities to maximise the benefit from treatment sessions.
  • Information on the recovery process and answers to your surgical rehabilitation questions.

We work in co-ordination with other health professionals and communicate with particularly your surgeon or GP to ensure that you achieve the very best possible outcome. Enhance staff are trained to monitor your progression following your procedure and can be vital to avoid un-necessary set backs and complications.
