At Motus Health we take pride in offering comprehensive rehabilitation following any orthopaedic surgery. Our physiotherapists have many years of experience assisting people with their recovery post-surgery. You would be hard pressed to find an orthopaedic procedure or surgery our team hasn’t had experience with.
Motus also provides the in-hospital physio to patients at both St Georges and Forté Health private hospitals. We regularly have patients under Motus physio care through their journey from pre surgery, in hospital and post-operative rehabilitation.
We can assist you from the early recovery phase; reducing pain and swelling, teaching crutch walking, and showing you early rehabilitation exercises; progressing you back to the level of activity you require, be that day-to-day life or high-level sport. We personalise the rehabilitation process to your needs.
Many surgeries can be rehabilitated at home using basic equipment and exercises, while other surgeries require a period of gym-based rehabilitation. All Motus clinics have either an onsite gym or access to a local gym, and our physiotherapists will be with you throughout your rehabilitation program.
Advise your orthopaedic surgeon that you would like to complete your rehabilitation with a Motus Health clinic. You surgeon will guide you as to when it’s appropriate to start physiotherapy post-surgery, and supply you with a referral letter. If your surgeon doesn’t offer this advice, please call a Motus clinic and one of our team will be able to advise you as to when it is appropriate to start rehabilitation.
