Spinal Surgery

Physiotherapy is required following all spinal surgical interventions. Pre-operative treatments are provided when indicated. Most importantly is the post-operative advice, exercise programme and assistance with resuming independent walking. Referral to an occupational therapist is advised, should the patient require assistance with functional tasks such as washing and dressing, following a lower back fusion.

Follow up treatments are scheduled should the individual require follow up care, an adjustment to his/her home exercise program to relieve muscle spasm.
