Using physiotherapy to enhance outcomes after surgery
Physiotherapy plays an important role in rehabilitation, both before and after surgery.

PRE-SURGERY physiotherapy includes: 


  • Thorough assessment to identify areas of dysfunction or weakness
  • Advice and education about expectations post-surgery and details about rehabilitation
  • Patient-guided goal setting to return to normal activities of daily living post-surgery
  • A tailored home exercise program to maintain or improve strength, flexibility and function leading into surgery.
 
POST-SURGERY physiotherapy includes: 


  • Advice and education about mobility and function at home, work and in the community
  • Soft tissue and joint mobilisation to help reduce pain, increase movement and progress function 
  • Providing long term strategy ideas to ensure people not only meet their fitness goals, but reduce the risk of further injury
  • A progressive home exercise program to enable a graded return to work, sport, day-to-day activities and remove all barriers to their fitness journey!
