A successful outcome from orthopaedic shoulder and arm surgery requires a multidisciplinary approach. Physiotherapy is an essential component that enables you to return to full function.

Our orthopaedic surgeons at Melbourne Arm Clinic work closely with physiotherapists, both before and after your operation, to allow you to return to work and recreational activities as quickly as possible. These rehabilitation protocols are a standardised guide to your recovery after surgery.

Each patient, the surgery and therapist is unique so variation may exist for your own post-operative pathway to recovery. Contact your Melbourne Arm Clinic surgeon or physiotherapist for queries and progress.
