​Post-operative rehabilitation protocols

The protocols offer a general guide for physical therapists.

The post-operative rehabilitation protocols are intended to guide clinicians through the post-operative course for the different injuries and specific surgical procedures. The protocols are based upon best available evidence, clinical expertise and surgical restrictions. The protocols have been produced by specialists and clinical experts within physical therapy and orthopedic surgery at Amager and Hvidovre Hospital. We also emphasize the importance of an individualized approach based upon shared-decision making between patient, therapist and other relevant parties.
