5 Elements of Recovery

Posture and Gait Assessment

All injuries to the body affect how our muscles keep our bones in balance. Correcting imbalance helps the body to prevent any future unnecessary complications from postural trauma postoperatively. 

Muscular Abilities with Range and Motion

Limitations creates room for improvement and full recovery potential.  We use a Goniometer to assess your movement.

Kinex™ Pressures

A new powerful muscular therapy that helps the body to speed up its post-operative re-connection process. It helps muscles to be used correctly again after the trauma of an operation and anaesthetic. The full use of muscles creates maximum lymphatic movement for the removal of waste fluid. This is essential for the lymphatic system which speeds up the body`s own ability to heal, improving range of motion for mobility recovery and movement.

Lymphatic Pressure Pumping Massage

Rhythmical pressure massage movements and manipulations work the lymphatic system to encourage fluid for optimum drainage, particularly important post-surgery as it helps to re-route lymph usually disrupted during surgery.

Specific Lymph Pumping Exercises

Guided exercises carried out with a small inflatable ball gives an understanding of the need to maintain a specifically designed lymphatic exercise programme, allowing clients continuous improvement at home.

During the recent pandemic clients successfully kept their own swelling at bay with these exercises.

  • An educational understanding of correct post-operative body movements for continuous recovery and how to prevent further deterioration.
