Medical research has found that physiotherapy is as essential prior to surgery, as it is post-surgery. It has been shown that post-surgical outcomes were better for those patients who took part in physiotherapy treatments before the surgery.
This process is called “pre-rehabilitation” and includes specific strength programs and manual therapies to prepare the joint involved to sustain the surgical procedure and recover faster.
The benefits of pre-rehabilitation are:
· Increase strength and range of movement
· Improve balance, endurance and joint stability
· Increase power and reduce the needs for walking aids post-surgery
post- surgery rehabilitation
After surgery, patients require physiotherapy treatments to restore the normal level of functions. The post-surgical treatments are often divided into phases.
Phase 1 aims to reduce the post-surgery symptoms such as swelling, inflammation, pain and loss of movements. Phase 2 helps to restore muscle strength and walking abilities. Phase 3 is about exercise progression in order to remove walking aids and improve stability. Phase 4 is the return to ‘normality’. In this phase, we work on specific goals to help the patient to return to an active lifestyle, pain-free without risks of recurrence.
The benefits of post-surgical physiotherapy are:
· Effective pain management
· Increase muscle power and joint movements
· Improve balance, endurance and stability
· Increase postural strength and avoid injury recurrence

From initial consultation to 4 ongoing sessions lasting a month Giuseppe worked closely with me to fix my back injury suffered from sport. As well as treatment he showed me exercises and stretches to perform between my visits which has meant a thorough recovery. I would highly recommend Giuseppe.
If Google allowed me to give Giuseppe at The Physio Box 6 stars, then I would! 5 will have to do! An outstanding Physiotherapist! Highly recommended!
Giuseppe has helped me recover from a number of rugby injuries over the last few years. Every time the diagnosis and prescribed treatment has got me back to rugby far quicker than originally forecasted by other physios. Having seen a lot of physios over the last 10 years, I always felt there was a “one size fits all” approach and the treatment seemed quite generic. This is Giuseppe’s point of difference, he truly takes time to understand the issue an recommended a course of treatment that always feels bespoke to me and my particularly injury. Would highly recommend!
A superb place that is both convenient and competitively priced. Giuseppe takes a considered professional approach and draws from experience to work through an appropriate treatment plan. Always a pleasure to have professionals who listen to your problems fully and are willing to adapt throughout the treatment plan and not just fob you off with the same system each visit. Great place and recommend 100%.
Giuseppe has guided me through post-shoulder surgery rehab, working toward getting back into competitive rugby. We worked closely together for about 7 months, seeing him twice a week for gym and rugby contact sessions as well as hands on treatment. I absolutely loved working with Giuseppe, making visible progress week by week. I couldn't have asked for a better person to guide me through my rehab process; Giuseppe didn't only pay attention to my shoulder, but also overall fitness and the mental aspect. All of this resulted in me getting back on the pitch stronger and fitter than ever. 12/10 would recommend him to anyone!
I have had lower back pain on and off for years - recently the pain had worsened tremendously. After trying everything - chiropractors, other physios, even yoga, nothing was working. I came across Giuseppe and the Physio Box on Facebook and opted in for a 15 minute assessment. Straight away I felt relaxed in the clinic and hope that I could get this problem fixed started to creep in again... I went ahead with a care package and now the pain is completely gone... I can't thank Giuseppe enough - his healing hands are nothing short of magical. Thank you so much - 100% recommendation.
Giuseppe has helped me in numerous occasions with my chronic back pain. I highly recommend his clinic for his professionalism and his passion for caring about the individual patients
I went to see Giuseppe for a knee problem and he was incredibly helpful, professional and skilful in treating my knee. After 2 session he resolved my problem completely!
