What is Pre and Post Operative Rehabilitation?

Pre and Post Operative Rehabilitation is a specialized branch of physiotherapy that focuses on preparing and supporting individuals before and after surgery. It aims to enhance the body’s healing process, restore functional abilities, and promote a faster and more efficient recovery. Our physiotherapists play a crucial role in optimizing surgical outcomes by addressing pre-operative conditioning, post-operative pain management, wound healing, scar tissue management, and restoring mobility and strength.

Pre-Operative Rehabilitation

Pre-operative rehabilitation aims to prepare your body for surgery, maximizing your overall health and well-being prior to the procedure. Our physiotherapists will assess your physical condition, identify any areas of weakness or limitations, and develop a customized exercise program to optimize your strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness. Pre-operative rehabilitation may also include education on breathing exercises, pain management strategies, and post-operative expectations, empowering you with the knowledge and tools needed for a successful surgery and recovery.

Post-Operative Rehabilitation

Post-operative rehabilitation is a crucial phase in your recovery journey. Our physiotherapists will work closely with you and your surgical team to develop a tailored rehabilitation plan that addresses your specific surgical procedure and individual needs. This may include gentle exercises to restore range of motion, progressive strengthening exercises, pain management techniques, manual therapy, and functional training to regain your independence and facilitate a safe return to daily activities. We will closely monitor your progress, make necessary adjustments to your program, and provide ongoing support and guidance throughout your rehabilitation process.

Collaborative Approach and Continuity of Care

We believe in a collaborative approach to Pre and Post Operative Rehabilitation. We work closely with your surgical team to ensure seamless continuity of care and to tailor our treatments to your specific surgical goals and requirements. Our physiotherapists will communicate with your surgeon, providing progress updates and adjusting your rehabilitation program as needed to optimize your recovery outcomes. We are committed to providing comprehensive care and supporting you throughout your surgical journey.
