What is Pre-Operative Physiotherapy?

At Jack Nathan Rehab, we offer Pre-Operative Physiotherapy. Pre-operative physiotherapy includes working with patients who are about to undergo an operation with the goal of reducing recovery time, reducing time spent in the hospital and earlier mobilization.

Pre-Operative Physiotherapy

Pre-Operative Physiotherapy will allow you to get a baseline for your functional ability, strength and range of motion prior to surgery to help set realistic goals for recovery.

Our Pre-Operative Physiotherapist can help provide custom exercises before surgery to help tone and strengthen muscles allowing you to jump back into daily activities much faster.

A physiotherapist will provide you with a better understanding of what to expect during your recovery.

They will equip you with information on the types of assistive devices required, if any, after surgery.

3. Alternative Ways to Function

A physiotherapist will guide you through alternative ways to function during your recovery period, ensuring minimal disruption to your daily routine.
