Pre and Post Op Rehab
Surgery can be part of the treatment process not an answer to problem on its own.
Rehabilitation before and after surgery is just as important as the surgery itself and often it is the bit that is missed out. Making yourself fitter and stronger before surgery can help with the your recovery (known as Prehab) and getting moving as soon as possible after surgery can help reduce swelling and stiffness and get you back to the active lifestyle you want.
Think of it like a car that has new brakes and tyres, it won't work any better unless you do something to the engine too.
Rehab in NK Active
Prehab includes working out a programme to help get you as strong as possible before surgery, targeting not just the area that will be operated on, but the surrounding areas identified by our strength testing.
For post op care, we will liaise with your surgeon and work out dates and plans for when we can move you forward, even if you have been discharged from your surgeon we can still help restore normal motion, build confidence and improve strength to help you achieve your goals.
We audit all of our data in NK Active, so we can consistantly improve our service and make sure we are helping you acheive your goals.
We know that 92% of people, 6 months after they have finished their treatment are still doing all their activity and sports at a level they wanted to reach.
Muscle stimulators are very helpful if you have been in a cast or boot for a long period of time and everything has stiffened up.
At NK Active, we have our own gym onsite and have muscle stimulators for our patients to use during treatment and hire.
What are people saying?
Following a complex ankle fracture I am running more often and for longer periods of time without any pain. I'm also able to be more explosive in my training and day to day movements are increasingly easier. Life is as close to as it was before my injury
I owe massive thanks to Nick Knight and his staff in the clinic as I truly don’t think I would be playing hockey again if it wasn’t for them, They helped me through the most difficult parts of my journey back to hockey.
They are so knowledgeable and welcoming and would do anything to get their clients to where they were before, or even better.
