A carefully planned rehabilitation programme is one of the key aspects of successful recovery, following treatment or surgery.
Physiotherapy can help you get back to normal by restoring your muscle strength, helping you to regain a range of movement and, most importantly, the confidence to do the things you love.
King Edward VII’s Hospital places great emphasis on rehabilitation and our highly experienced team of chartered physiotherapists works closely with our consultants.
Our physiotherapists can work with you from the privacy of your hospital bedroom, or in our dedicated physiotherapy unit, to support you on your journey back to fitness.
We have one of London’s only purpose-built hydrotherapy pools.
If you’ve had treatment such as foot, knee, hip or shoulder surgery, the warmth and support of the water helps to decrease pain, improve mobility and enhance balance and co-ordination.
Physiotherapy can benefit a wide spectrum of conditions, from sports injuries to arthritis and chronic pain. It can also help with rehabilitation after an operation.
The treatments we offer include:
In addition to our physiotherapy outpatient department, each ward has a physiotherapist who monitors patients having orthopaedic surgery. Your physiotherapist will help you get up and about as soon as possible through physiotherapy exercises. They can also support you if a pre-existing problem reoccurs or gets worse while you are in hospital.
