Pre & Post-Operative Rehabilitation
Previously we thought we only needed Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation following completion of Orthopaedic Surgery, however thanks to modern science we now know that there is strong evidence to support the benefits of Physio and Rehab prior to surgery, commonly known as “pre-op rehab”.
Early identification of areas that may require strengthening, flexibility, mobility, or increased proprioception (balance) have been shown to help improve the post-operative outcomes, including recovery time and reduce the risk of post-operative complications, ultimately leading to a more successful surgical journey and return to function.
