Physiotherapy Management and Post-operative Physiotherapy
Post-operative management will have started before the procedure with appropriate counselling and preparation. This preparation will have included identification and management of any risk factors. The patient will have been provided with a clear explanation of the procedure, the risk-benefits and the likely outcome. This will have included a description of what the patient should expect in terms of short- and long-term recovery. The patient will have been reassured about pain control measures and, perhaps most difficult of all, the doctor will have tried to ensure that the patient's expectations match those of the health professional.
