Pre-Operative Assessment

Physiotherapy is crucial post-operatively but, in order to maximize your recovery after the surgery, it is also important pre-operatively. Our physiotherapists will do a pre-op assessment to gain baseline information about your strength, range of motion and pain. They will then devise a personal program for you so that you will be in optimal shape going into the surgery and they will educate you on what to expect during your post-op physiotherapy treatment.
