In modern medicine the push for conservative management through physiotherapy over surgical intervention has increased with more studies showing the outcomes between the control and surgical group being near identical in the long term for various conditions. The common objective is to avoid surgery and weigh benefits vs risks in any surgical decision being made in collaboration with the patient.

At times surgical intervention is required and patients undergone surgery must see a physiotherapist after surgery (post-op treatment). Having undergone surgery for your condition it is imperative to regain as much function as possible through range of motion exercises, stretching regime and followed by a graduated strengthening exercise program. Lack of physiotherapy post-op can result in adverse outcomes such as reduced function in the affected body part or complications such as frozen shoulder.
