Post-operative Re-education

Some surgeries require post-operative physiotherapeutic treatment. The objective is to improve the health condition of the patient so he/she can achieve the maximum possible autonomy and perform their daily activities again.

The main objectives of this treatment are:

  • Pain relief
  • Reduction of edemas
  • Recovery of muscle strength
  • Recovery of articulation mobility
  • Improvement of muscle stretching
  • Improvement of equilibrium and proprioception
  • Walk training: Evolution from walking with support (walkers, crutches or canes) to march without support.
  • Accelerate the return to sports activities
  • Increase quality of life


  • Orthopedic surgeries (ligaments reconstruction, fractures fixation, arthroplasties (prostheses), etc.)
  • Neurological surgeries
  • Vascular surgeries
  • Surgeries in general

The post-surgery physiotherapy must be conducted by an experienced professional, who will lead the treatment in order to obtain the best results for each patient. Mme. Juliana Ferra is a specialist in post-surgery orthopedic re-education, further information can be found in her curriculum vitae.
