Surgery Preparation (Pre-hab)

What is Pre-hab?

Pre-operative physiotherapy helps to prepare you for your upcoming surgery and can optimise response to the procedure as well as recovery time by:

  • Improving strength and mobility of the affected area and supporting muscles
  • Increase confidence
  • Prepare you mentally for what to expect post-surgery

Our Physios conduct a full assessment to better understand your specific needs and what to focus on before your surgery. It is also likely that before surgery, there were pre-existing muscle strength deficits, loss of mobility, or stability issues. So it will be beneficial to address this as much as possible prior to the procedure.

We also communicate with your surgeon to better understand if there are any specific requirements and recommendations regarding what to incorporate in your pre-hab program, to make sure that you are best prepared and have an easier rehabilitation process after your surgery.
