Surgery can be a daunting process. We work with patients to optimise their recovery from operations.
In the pre-operative phase, we work with you to reduce swelling and pain and increase range of motion and strength. We want you to be in the best condition possible before your operation. We help you to understand the surgery and timeline for recovery and set specific goals for your rehabilitation.
Pre-surgery rehabilitation allows patients to prepare for and recuperate from surgery safely under the supervision of their physiotherapist. Physiotherapy prior to surgery helps reduce pain and inflammation. It improves joint mobility and range of motion to prepare clients for a successful surgical outcome.
Pre-surgical rehabilitation involves an individualised exercise conditioning program that trains the muscles in advance for the exercises they will need to perform post-surgery. Pre-surgical rehabilitation helps relieve pain, reduce inflammation, increase stamina, enhance overall fitness, restore range of motion and regain strength and flexibility in the joints and muscles near the injured area.
Pre-surgical physical therapy leads to faster recovery with better outcomes, fewer complications and reduced anxiety. Most pre-operative rehabilitation programs last four to six weeks, depending on your needs.
Physiotherapy can aid in pre and and post surgery recovery.
