Post-Neurosurgery Rehab Programs

Post Neurosurgery Rehabilitation

Following neurosurgery, the path to healing can be tough, and the idea of going home from hospital might seem overwhelming. Our devoted team understands this and is dedicated to supporting you with a personalised rehabilitation program aimed at empowering and assist you in accomplishing a successful recovery.

The Impact of Neurosurgery

Recovering from neurosurgery takes time, and it’s understandable to face challenges along the way. You may be dealing with pain, fatigue, weakness, and symptoms related to your neurological condition. These factors can significantly impact your ability to carry out daily activities, such as:

  • Getting in and out of bed
  • Standing up from sitting
  • Showering, bathing, grooming and getting dressed
  • Walking
  • Eating
  • Communicating, reading and writing
  • Memory and problem solving
  • Driving or catching public transport
  • Returning to hobbies

Rehab outcomes

Whether you’re coming from the hospital or starting from home, your post-neurosurgery rehabilitation plan will be customised to suit your specific requirements. This includes considering your neurological condition and how independent you are after the surgery. Our attention may involve:

  • Improving strength and endurance
  • Improving mobility and balance
  • Improving fine motor skills
  • Improving memory and problem solving
  • Reducing chronic pain
  • Reducing fatigue
  • Improving mental health
  • Managing stress
  • Finding new or alternate ways of doing daily living activities
  • Finding ways to do difficult things in different ways
