Pre/Post Surgery

Maximising your long term outcomes after surgery

Pre/Post Surgery Programs

Pre-Surgical Programs

The way you prepare your body in the weeks prior to surgery are crucial.  Pre surgerical rehabilitation is used to develop an exercise program that can be performed 4-6 weeks prior to surgery.  These programs will help you to maximise your range of movement while you are preparing for surgery and ensure a smooth recovery. 

Post-Surgical Programs

Post-surgical rehabilitation is important in acheiving the optimum outcome from your procedure.  The goal of post surgical physiotherapy programs are to help you return to physical function.  Your post-surgical rehabilitation program will entail two parts:

  • Post-Surgical Exercise:  Completed as a home exercise program until at least week 4, then completed twice weekly thereafter.  Research suggests muscular recovery will continue for 12 months post surgery
  • Post-Surgical Physiotherapy:  We recommend weekly physiotherapy to decrease your pain and maximise your range of movement until your range as plateued for 2 weeks.  This will likely take 6-12 weeks
