Surgery is sometimes the only way to return to health. Even the most ideally performed surgical procedure can bring less-than-ideal effects if it is not followed by an intensive rehabilitation program in Kraków, SPORTOKLINIK is the go-to center for professional rehabilitation treatment.

Post-operative rehabilitation is a necessary stage of treatment, with the goal of providing the patient  the shortest recovery time possible. Additionally, it is important in preventing negative effects of surgery including:

  • reduction of muscle strength
  • pain
  • swelling
  • limited range of motion
  • muscle atrophy

Postoperative rehabilitation is recommended following various types of operative procedures performed on the musculoskeletal system, such as:

  • arthroscopy (knee, shoulder, hip)
  • endoprosthesis implantation (knee and hip)
  • reconstructive/plastic procedures of ligaments and tendons (ACL – anterior cruciate ligament, PCL – posterior cruciate ligament, Achilles tendon, rotator cuff)
  • operative treatment of the spine
  • operative fixation of bone fractures
  • states following prolonged immobilization
