There are no two brain operations that are the same. You don’t need rehabilitation after every operation, often just scar mobilisation is enough. However, if you experience problems with movement or pain in the head or neck area, it is worth seeing a physiotherapist.
A detailed history and examination based on the WHO recommended International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) helps me to assess the patient individually. I use this classification when examining all my patients, but it is very useful for me especially with patients after brain surgery, where one millimetre can make a huge difference in the clinical picture.
When it comes to neck pain, manual techniques can be tried.
