Therapy sessions before and after surgery are aimed at facilitating a speedy recovery and return to work and activities in a shorter time.
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 advice you on your recovery phase and expectations post operatively.
Post-operatively, it is important that you continue to work with the physiotherapist to help you maximize 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.
