PRE & POST SURGICAL REHAB

Physiotherapy is an important adjunct to most musculoskeletal procedures.

Having a physiotherapist help guide your recovery in conjunction with your surgeon will ensure:

  • Full strength and movement are restored safely.

  • Full function and return to work, activity and sport are achieved.

  • Secondary issues that may arise are minimized.

Physiotherapy can be completed prior to a procedure to ensure you are in the best place pre-operatively. This includes building up your strength, movement, managing secondary issues if they arise. This approach has been shown to result in faster recovery times after your procedure.


Post-operative physiotherapy begins in conjunction with your post-operative orders. In hospital some simple exercises can be used to help minimise post-surgical complications. If appropriate some early strength and range of movement exercises may also be given. Once discharged from hospital exercise consultation with your physiotherapist to guide progression to regain full movement, strength and function will be required. In order to do this most effectively and safely we have experience in many operative procedures.
