The road to recovery doesn’t have to wait until after surgery. Moreover, you need both pre and post-operative treatments for a successful recovery.  

WHAT IS PRE-OPERATIVE CARE?

This is a program designed by your physiotherapist so that you are prepared before surgery and can get good results.

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF PRE-OPERATIVE REHAB?

  • Mentally prepare for surgery
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improving control of joints
  • Better well-being and fitness
  • Teach exercises to do after the surgery

WHAT IS POST-OPERATIVE CARE?

Even after you get discharged from the hospital, we can continue to support your post-operative treatments.  Physiotherapy is used after surgery because it speeds the recovery process.

You don’t need a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist, but any information about your surgery will be helpful. Furthermore, your physiotherapist can make a tailored treatment plan. They will use a combination of techniques, so your body can improve. This can result in an improved range of motion, coordination and strength so that you can return to your life.

WHAT DOES THE POST-OPERATIVE TREATMENT INVOLVE?

  • For less pain, we use methods such as ice, heat, and electrical stimulation
  • Physical therapy 
  • Flexibility exercises 
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Posture and balance training
  • Teach exercises to do after the surgery
