Pre & Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Historically, physiotherapy has been emphasized as a post-surgical rehabilitation activity. But today we know that physical preparation and evaluation before most orthopedic procedures can speed up recovery, reduce pain, and reduce your anxiety. In addition, becoming familiar with your therapist and the exercises he or she will recommend after surgery will make them easier to do. Starting your physical preparation and planning for all your rehabilitation needs as soon as possible in anticipation of surgery not only improves outcomes and speeds recovery, but also reduces the most common frustrations most patients face with their physical therapy and rehabilitation.
