Elbow Post-operative Care
Best care, advice and support post surgery
The elbow joint is one of the most complex joints in the body. In order for it to recover to its best function, consistent rehabilitation is essential in order to obtain the optimal outcome after injury. It is important that this be carefully carried out under the supervision of a physiotherapist.
Injuries to the elbow can be very painful and this can cause difficulties with completing the required exercises. Stiffness can often occur after injury. A well supervised rehabilitation program can minimise the effect of this.
Before embarking on a rehabilitation program, be sure that your physiotherapist is aware of the nature and extent of the injury. Each elbow needs specific rehabilitation based on the injury type and nature of surgery performed. Please speak to one of our team regarding specific Elbow Physiotherapists that they recommend.
