Post-Operative Physiotherapy

Post-operative therapy involves a customized manual therapy and exercise program which is critical to restoring full mobility, strength, and function.

What should I expect during my rehabilitation?

Your physiotherapist will evaluate your postoperative condition by measuring mobility, strength, and pain levels, and discussing challenges in daily and work activities. Together, you’ll set specific goals and milestones to customize your rehab. Through manual therapy and exercises, we aim to restore you to your favorite activities.

Will my physiotherapist work with my surgeon?

Yes, your physiotherapist will collaborate with your surgeon, following any post-operative guidelines provided. If no specific protocol is given, they’ll design a rehab plan based on best practices. Regardless of your surgeon’s location, our team ensures consistent communication for uninterrupted care.

What is pre-habilitation?

Pre-habilitation involves physiotherapy to improve mobility and strength before surgery.  Evidence has shown that pre-hab can help speed up recovery after your operation and improve your surgical outcome.  Your physiotherapist will work with you to improve your function before surgery as well as explain your rehab plan post-operatively.

When will I be able to return to working out or sports?

Your physiotherapist will guide your return to sports and workouts based on healing guidelines and your rehab progress. They will help retrain sport-specific movements and work with you on tailored exercises to restore your pre-injury condition.
