Have you had a recent fracture, operation or time in hospital?

Following a fracture, a joint replacement, and a period of being immobilised in a sling or cast, muscles can get tight and weak, and joints can get stiff. When muscles are tight and weak this can predispose you to injuries, and can make everyday tasks harder than they need to be!

Even after a few days in bed or hospital, you can lose fitness and muscle strength and mass.

Physiotherapy is an important part of getting you back to normal, allowing you to regain your flexibility and strength and restore normal movement and gradually increase your exercise tolerance.

Here at Southside physiotherapy clinic we can offer you therapies such as manual therapy, modalities and a safe and personalised exercise program to get you feeling yourself again!
