Pre-operative rehabilitation serves to optimize your functional level in preparation for your surgery. You will be taught exercises that will facilitate your recovery in the immediate post surgical period. The physiotherapist will be able to advise you on your recovery phase and expectations post operatively.
Post-operatively, it is important that you continue to work with the physiotherapist to optimize your recovery. The physiotherapist will assess your post operative recovery status, and prescribe a comprehensive rehabilitation program to help you regain range of motion, muscle strength, functional mobility, balance and return to work/ activities.
Together, pre and post operative rehabilitation serve to facilitate a faster recovery and return to daily activities.
