What Are ACL, Rotator Cuff, Spinal and Ankle Surgeries?

ACL, rotator cuff, spinal and ankle surgeries are four distinct procedures that are carried out to reduce pain and repair damage in specific parts of the body.


ACL refers to the anterior cruciate ligament, a tissue that’s found in the knee that connects the thigh and shin bones. Surgery is typically performed on the ACL if a complete or, in some cases, a partial tear occurs.


Your rotator cuff is a collection of muscles and tendons that support the shoulder joint and allow movement. Similar to ACL injuries, a tear in the rotator cuff often warrants surgery.


Spinal surgeries are necessary for a plethora of different reasons, and among the most common are to treat spine deformities, herniated disks, stenosis, and multiple other issues relating to the spine.


Ankles are among the most frequently injured parts of the body due to people hurting themselves when exercising. Surgery may be required to mend fractures, reduce arthritis pain, and treat damaged ligaments or tendons.

How Do We Use Physiotherapy to Treat ACL, Rotator Cuff, Spinal and Ankle Surgeries?

After you’ve successfully undergone ACL, rotator cuff, spine, or ankle surgery, your doctor will talk you through the recovery process you’ll complete to ensure optimum results. 


This will include physiotherapy treatment, which usually begins within the weeks following the procedure, depending on the nature of the surgery and recommended healing times. We offer our physio services in houses and condos, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and retirement homes.


When you’re advised to start physical therapy, you’ll begin by meeting with one of your therapists to discuss how you’re feeling post-surgery, make note of any side effects, and partake in various assessments. The examinations your therapist will conduct will vary based on the type of surgery you’ve had but will usually involve checking for mobility, function, and flexibility in the affected area while also looking out for pain and swelling.


From here, your therapist will formulate a rehabilitation programme specific to your needs and expected progress. This plan will be multi-faceted and often consists of exercises to promote strength, balance, and coordination, as well as hot, cold, and massage therapies.


The key aims of physiotherapy for clients recovering from ACL, rotator cuff, spine, or ankle surgery include:


  • Restoring the full function of the affected area
  • Minimizing pain and swelling
  • Regaining strength and range of motion
  • Improving flexibility and agility

Benefits of Physiotherapy for ACL, Rotator Cuff, Spinal and Ankle Surgeries

Physiotherapy for ACL, rotator cuff, spine, or ankle surgeries offers a host of benefits, most notably in guiding clients through their journey to complete recovery. Some other benefits of this treatment include:

  • Physiotherapy allows clients to return to their daily lives through a smooth and gradual transition process. As you make gains during your treatment, you’ll steadily begin to introduce routine tasks and activities back into your life. Your therapist will help you to determine how and when to do this without setting your rehabilitation back.
  • Attending physiotherapy is the best chance to avoid further potential injuries and repeated damage. By increasing the strength and endurance of your muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons during your physio sessions, you’ll lower your risk of additional or returning injuries.
  • You can enjoy a better quality of life through physiotherapy, as your therapist will work with you to bring down pain and discomfort. Moreover, you’ll develop strategies to combat pain when it does strike to deal with it effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

Weight-bearing exercises may be introduced early in your physiotherapy programme, sometimes within the first week. That being said, such exercises will generally work on tolerating minimal weight, which will slowly increase as you become stronger.


It’s important to note that, outside of your physiotherapy sessions, you should avoid weight-bearing activities until your therapist deems you well enough, which may not be for 6-8 weeks.

After completing rotator cuff surgery, it often takes up to one year to regain full function of your shoulder. This doesn’t mean that your shoulder won’t be healed until then, but it does mean that you may not have full use of the affected muscles and tendons. 


It’s important to note that this timeframe may be adjusted for different clients.

Within 4-8 weeks, you’ll gradually become strong and mobile enough to reintroduce many of your everyday activities into your routine, particularly if you work a sedentary job. 


Clients who have strenuous, manual jobs and partake in high-impact physical activities may not be able to resume them as quickly and should seek advice from their therapist before doing so.

Your physiotherapist will work on several mobility and strength-enhancing exercises with you, some of which you’ll also complete at home. These may include:


  • Ankles circles
  • Calf stretches
  • One-leg stands
  • Heel raises
  • Ankle pumps

    Thanks you to Get Right Physio and especially Sabrina for getting my 90 year old mother back on her feet after hip replacement surgery. I was very pleased with the company’s professional expertise and for sending us the right therapist for my mother. Sabrina was very kind, knowledgeable and understanding. I would not hesitate to use the company again.
