Helping you to recover
Helping you to recover
Here at the Mackay Clinic we understand that you want to return to work, sport or activity as quickly as you can following surgery
To help you achieve this, we work with many of the top, most highly qualified physiotherapists in Scotland and in other parts of the UK
Following InternalBrace surgery you will find that you are able to mobilise faster than following the same operation done with traditional reconstruction methods. This means that it is very important to work with a physiotherapist who understands this if you are to gain the full benefit of a faster recovery. The physiotherapists we have linked to below all have experience of rehabbing InternalBrace patients.
We work with the best
Physiotherapists we work with
We want to see patients make the best possible recoveries following InternalBrace surgery. Therefore we have asked highly experienced sports physiotherapist Stewart Kerr of Life Fit Wellness to make downloadable rehab protocols for patients recovering from InternalBrace surgery. If your physiotherapist is unfamiliar with rehabbing InternalBrace clients they can download and use our rehab programmes
Frequently Asked Questions about physiotherapy following surgery
In most cases physiotherapy is helpful if you have had surgery. A physio will visit you in hospital following your surgery and suggest basic physio exercises to follow in the first few weeks after surgery. After your first post-op check up with Professor Mackay, (usually 10 days after surgery), when he will check your wound and advise on return to work, driving, etc, you should plan to engage the support of a physiotherapist to help with a steady build up to regular duties and return to sport.
In most instances, because you mobilise more quickly, your physiotherapy may indeed differ from that following conventional surgery. If you provide us with the contact details of your physiotherapist we can copy him/her into any correspondence relating to your care and can forward suggested physiotherapy protocols relevant to your rehabilitation.
Physiotherapy treatment is not covered by the Mackay Clinic. A physiotherapist will visit you in hospital after your operation and advise on initial physiotherapy steps. Following this many funded patients find that a course of physiotherapy is covered by their health insurer. You will need to contact your provider directly to discuss this. Self pay patients are sometimes offered physiotherapy as part of their Fixed Price Package from the hospital. Please contact Lynne Docherty at BMI Ross Hall Hospital for further details.
