Pre Joint Replacement Treatment
Here at Finely Tuned Physio we are here to make your life easier!
We are currently offering different packages for those who are due to have a replacement. You will have an Initial consultation with our Consultant Physiotherapist Gemma, who will assess any issues such as weaknesses, biomechanical issues including gait and posture and any concerns you may have. In this session, Gemma will discuss with you the benefits of the different packages we are offering.
One of the packages will involve the combination of Shockwave therapy and rehabilitation. Benefits of Shockwave therapy prior to replacement involves being in less pain. Although this is temporary, this means you will be able to perform the required exercises to help strengthen relevant areas as well as helping you to move efficiently. It can also help you to sleep better! Shockwave therapy has regenerative properties so the bone that we would shockwave will be healthier, ready to accept the prosthesis which can prolong the life of the joint replacement! Shockwave Therapy can also help to reduce any scarring that you may have, post-operatively.
Performing rehabilitation pre-replacement can help strengthen the surrounding tissues to support the joint, allowing for full range of motion. This means the replacement-process will be a lot smoother! Rehabilitation sessions alone is part of one package, the second package rehabilitation is utilised in combination with Shockwave Therapy.
These sessions will be carried out with our Lead Sports Therapist Emma.
