Pre and Post Operative Rehab

Pre and Post Operative Rehab

Pre and post operative rehab is often recommended for those having orthopaedic surgery. The following are several important benefits of having pre and post-operative rehab. Physiotherapy treatment can help you achieve as much strength, stamina, flexibility, and improved range of motion as possible both before and after your surgery. A physiotherapist may use a variety of manual therapies or teach you exercises you can do at home. A physiotherapist might also use heat, ice, or electrical stimulation for better result.

Physical therapy prior to surgery helps reduce pain and inflammation. It improves joint mobility and range of motion to prepare patient for a more successful surgery outcome. Pre-operative rehabilitation is an individualized exercise conditioning program that trains the muscles in advance for the exercises they will need to do post-surgery. Pre-operative rehabilitation helps patients to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, increase stamina, enhance overall fitness, restore range of motion and regain strength and flexibility in the joints and muscles near the injured area. Pre-surgical physical therapy leads to faster recovery with better

Post – Operative Rehabilitation

Post-operative rehabilitation is crucial to regaining pain-free function and returning to daily activities safely and more quickly. Post-operative physiotherapy safely eases patients back into daily activity and regular exercise. Our physiotherapist perform a thorough evaluation post-surgery and develop a customized treatment plan to minimize adverse effects from surgery and restore normal movement, flexibility, and function. Post-operative rehabilitation helps patients to manage post-operative pain, regain motion and strength, decrease pain, stiffness, and swelling and return to their daily activities more quickly. Post-operative rehabilitation can take several months and it is essential to begin physiotherapy therapy shortly after surgery so that the joint can heal properly and minimize scar tissue development. Physiotherapy following surgery will lead to a faster recovery.
