We can help you prepare for your surgery and recover quicker

Pre/Post Surgical Physiotherapy (also via Telehealth)

We know that pre-operative physiotherapy plays an important part in your successful recovery after surgery.

Pre -operative physiotherapy particularly before joint replacements and spinal surgeries can help speed up your recovery process by maximising your strength and condition prior to surgery.  Pre-operative physiotherapy focuses on managing acute symptoms such as pain and swelling but also improve your general fitness and strength, helping you to reduce your recovery time post surgery.

Post Operative physiotherapy helps you to restore range of movement, improve strength and mobility, decrease pain and minimising any post surgical complications. It involves a structured series of exercise programs (protocols) often prescribed by your surgeon; manual therapy such as soft tissue therapy and mobilisations; exercise therapy; hydrotherapy; and education (including gait re-education where needed).

Surgical procedures we can assist you post-operatively include:

  • ACL reconstruction
  • Shoulder reconstruction
  • Rotator Cuff repair
  • Knee replacement
  • Hip replacement
  • Spinal surgery
  • Fracture management
