Pre-Operative Physiotherapy Treatment for Your Scheduled Surgery
Prior to your scheduled surgery (Hip,Knee, Ankle etc), you will be assessed by our registered physiotherapist for a preoperative examination and preoperative treatment/intervention plan. One purpose of this visit is to get a baseline of information including the location and severity of your pain, your functional abilities, your strength, the available range of motion of each knee, and your breathing pattern. An assessment will be made of any needs you may have at home (e.g., equipment, safety adaptations) after surgery.
Our pre-operative treatment enables you to have a faster and easier recovery from any orthopaedic surgeries. Prior to undergoing a knee or hip operation our team of experienced physiotherapists can ensure you have the optimal functional ability to maximize your recovery. Today’s total knee arthoplasties and total hip surgeries are complex operations that require physiotherapy to ensure proper outcomes. Even knee meniscus and ACL operations have been shown to heal better when physiotherapy intervention is part of both the pre and post-operative sections of recovery.
Our Registered Physiotherapists are capable and will work with you to coordinate your recovery. If you are undergoing a surgical joint replacement, surgical revision, or a surgery which will affect your mobility or functional ability; contact us and let us assist your recovery and return to your daily life.
Post-Operative Physiotherapy Treatment
Physiotherapy treatments are often provided after the surgery to help decrease stiffness and pain. Our Registered Physiotherapists will assist you in returning to independence and a more active lifestyle.
Our Registered Physiotherapists working with your doctor and surgeon will assist your recovery. It is a coordinated team effort, and the result is a more satisfying recovery.
