Pre & Postoperative

Pre- and Post-Operative Rehabilitation

Pre-Operative – The stronger you are before surgery the quicker you will rehabilitate after. As such we provide pre-operative rehabilitation programs to help strengthen the specific area and get you in the best shape possible pre-surgery in order to allow the best outcome post-surgery.

 

Post-Operative – With new advances in medicine it is now more and more apparent that is very important to get moving right after surgery. Depending on your surgery you may have specific movement or weight bearing restrictions. You should book in for physiotherapy ASAP after surgery. Your treatment on the day after surgery may be more passive and focus on surrounding joints, decreasing swelling and initiating muscle recruitment, however the sooner you start mobilizing the quicker you will recover. A physiotherapist will assess you and make a specific rehabilitation plan depending on your surgery, any surgical restrictions and your specific goals.
