Spinal Surgery

Having spinal surgery is often a very daunting and confronting experience for many people. There are various types of spinal surgery (e.g. laminectomy, spinal fusions) and they are performed in all three areas of the spine:

Typically the initial recovery stage after spinal surgeries will involve limited activity. You will usually need someone at home with you to help with domestic tasks and in certain cases, help with tasks like putting on shoes.

We provide a safe and evidence based rehabilitation process for our patients who have had spinal surgeries. We find that our clients are often overwhelmed and somewhat scared at the thought of having this back or neck surgery, which is very understandable. So we prioritise patient comfort and education, to ensure our patients know exactly what to expect and where we are headed in the rehabilitation journey.
