TREATMENT BEFORE & AFTER SURGERY

Rehabilitation after surgery

Rehabilitation after surgery is essential to get your body back to optimal fitness and function.

Do you plan on having surgery soon?

Rehabilitation before surgery also plays an equally important role in strengthening the body and getting your body ready to cope with with surgery. It is common for traumas and illnesses to compromise the body's ability to adapt and compensate.

Our multidisciplinary approach can help ensure a speedy and complete recovery from the operation. If you have an upcoming surgery planned, contact us to learn more about how we can help you prepare and recover.

Rehabilitation before surgery

It is crucial to ensure your body is in the best possible condition to enable a faster recovery. It is common for there to be a period of relative inactivity before surgery. Building muscle strength around the area is vital to ensure the best possible results after surgery. Our pre-operative program involves undergoing movement assessment and graded exercise prescription to increase tissue resilience and improve joint mechanics.

Rehabilitation after surgery

Treatment after surgery aims to help the patient achieve optimal physical condition and functioning. Although the body can heal after surgery, it often needs help. We can help you regain mobility and avoid loss of muscle mass, range of motion, and scar tissue.

 

A treatment plan developed by our experienced therapists will not only take into account your surgery wound but also encourage quality healing. Following the surgeon's rehabilitation guidelines, we can ensure you recover quickly and fully after surgery.
