Pre/ Post Surgery

How we can help

Surgery is something that we are all trying to avoid. However, sometimes it is the only option or the best option. Therefore, here at SB Sports Massage and Rehabilitation, we are experts in both preparing you and your body for surgery and the recovery post-surgery. This is done through a combination of manual therapy, rehabilitation and pain management.

  • Improving quality of life
  • Returning to work/ play
  • Decrease of pain and swelling

Injuries that we treat:

  • Spinal surgery
  • Joint replacement

And many more…

How to prepare for your sessionBefore your appointment, please ensure you wear suitable clothing such as sports/gym wear. Bring with you any medical notes or information that you have been previously given to help us best tailor your treatments.

What to expect from each visit


When you arrive at any one of our clinics you will be welcomed by one of our friendly Therapists.

You will be made to feel as comfortable as possible and will be asked a series of questions so the Therapist can gain an understanding of the reason for your visit. There will be a brief assessment to establish any areas of pain and discomfort.


The Therapist will then advise on which items of clothing you need to remove, leave the room whilst you get changed and will give you towels with which to drape yourself.

Your Therapist will return to begin the treatment and will continually update you on what they are doing and why. All Therapists are used to working and adapting the depth of pressure to each client’s individual tolerance level, so you shouldn’t experience too much discomfort.


During the treatment the Therapist will be starting to formulate a plan of how we can continue to help you moving forward.

At the end of each session you will be given an update on how your body seems to have reacted to the treatment and you will be given advice on how you can manage any discomfort once you leave the clinic. You may feel slightly sore, tender and a little lethargic post-treatment, all of which can be totally normal.


Despite this, we can guarantee that you will feel better within 1-2 days and will be already considering returning for further treatment.

In order for the client to build a professional relationship with each Therapist and to get continuity with each treatment, we recommend you try and see the same Therapist next time. However, if this is not possible then each Therapist has access to all client information so they will be fully informed on your history prior to meeting you.
