Pre-Surgical Education and Rehabilitation
Your physician may provide a referral for physiotherapy prior to your scheduled surgery. The purpose of pre-surgical physiotherapy will vary depending on your condition. Our physiotherapists will discuss your post-surgical precautions and/or restrictions. You may be instructed on how to perform your daily activities in a safe way or how to use an assistive device, such as a cane, crutches or a walker, if needed.
You may be given exercises to perform at home in order to minimize your level of pain and dysfunction before surgery. Depending on your needs, you may be seen for one visit or multiple visits before your surgery.
At Premier Care Physiotherapy, our goal during post-surgical rehabilitation is to return you to your optimal level of physical function. This includes successful return to your work, recreational activities, and competitive sports.
Our therapists provide one-on-one treatment sessions to closely monitor your progress and will advance you according to your response as well as your physician’s recommendations.
