Pre-and Post-Surgical Rehab

Pre- and Post-Surgical Physiotherapy

Let us help you prepare for your surgery. We can educate you on exercises to assist in making the best possible outcomes.

Following surgery we can begin immediate post-surgical rehabilitation to ensure the best possible outcome.

Our physiotherapy team will encourage you to carry out a range of exercises to strengthen and mobilize affected joints and muscles, accelerating recovery.

Benefits of post- surgical Physiotherapy include:

  • Effective management of your pain
  • Help you return to activities of daily living
  • Strengthening of weak muscles
  • Stretching of muscles ┬áthat may have become stiff
  • Help get you back to your pre-op activities
  • Improving your posture
  • Regain your independence
  • Reduce any anxiety that you may have and regain your confidence
  • Mobilization exercises to improve circulation and range of motion
  • Advise on effective positioning to increase comfort and improve sleep

We are very excited that the Province of Manitoba is now providing funding for post-op Physiotherapy for individuals who have had a total hip or knee replacement on or after January 1, 2023. We offer 1-on-1 treatment sessions with experienced Physiotherapists to help you maximize your recovery.

Our Team

All of our Physiotherapists have received a University education and are professionally registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Manitoba.

They are committed to providing professional evidence-based hands-on treatment, and education and exercises to help reduce your pain and restore your function and mobility. They pursue ongoing post-graduate courses to employ the most current techniques in their practice.
