- Musculoskeletal surgery
- Ligament reconstruction
Musculoskeletal surgery may be required for a number of reasons such as muscular tear, meniscal damage or joint dysfunctions. Due to the invasive nature of surgery, post-surgical rehabilitation will be required. In the initial days following surgery, our therapists could use manual lymphatic drainage to control and reduce swelling and pain. During the later stages of repair, our therapists could use deep tissue or friction massage to target and address scar tissue which if left untreated could produce pain, limited range of movement and reduced performance.
Immediately following a liposuction procedure our therapists can use manual lymphatic drainage to help reduce swelling, pain and promote healing. In the later stages of healing following cosmetic surgery, the Sports Therapists can use deeper forms of massage to target and break down scar tissue which if left untreated could cause pain, limited range of movement and an uneven appearance.
Our Sports Therapists can use massage treatment with an individual following ligament reconstruction surgery. Ligament reconstruction sometimes involves taking a graft from a muscle to form a new ligament. The Sports Therapists can use massage treatment to ensure any muscle that has given a graft can rehabilitate to original strength and quality.
