Pre-Surgery Rehab

Pre-Surgery Rehab

Point 2 Point Physiotherapy offers pre-surgery rehab, pre-op care,  and even pre-op physical therapy for total knee replacement. So if it’s pre rehabilitation care that you need, talk to our team. We understand that physiotherapy is an important complement to musculoskeletal procedures and surgeries so we’ll do our utmost best to help you.

Our pre-surgery rehabilitation consists of exercise-based intervention that will be offered to you before you are set to undergo surgery. It is also known as ‘pre-habilitation’ or ‘prehab’.

Pre-surgery treatments help you to recover quickly and have a positive effect on pain and function pre and post-surgery. It is often used before hip and knee joint replacements and is performed under supervision from our certified physiotherapists.

A pre-surgery exercise program will consist of a strength/resistance training component and a cardiovascular component.

The benefits are –

  • Improvements in postoperative function can result in a faster return to work time and a reduction in services and level of personal assistance required.
  • Pre-surgery rehabilitation can have a positive effect on pain management pre-surgery.
  • Pre-surgery rehab before a joint replacement can result in reduced pain between weeks 1-4 post-operation.
  • Soft tissue surgeries such as the ACL can see increases in knee-related functional and muscle strength when pre-surgery rehabilitation is undertaken.
