While your injury may require surgery, it may be a number of weeks until the surgical date. Physiotherapy plays an important role in making sure your body is in the best possible shape prior to surgery. “Prehabilitation” means that you may be in a better starting position after surgery, making recovery quicker and easier. The process involves a range of treatment techniques which aim to decrease your pain whilst increasing your range of motion and strength.
Physiotherapy plays an important role in your recovery following surgery and in most cases, our involvement begins in the days and weeks post operation. It is important to consult with your physiotherapist as to when your treatment begins. Braces and slings may feel like a restriction to beginning physiotherapy but in many cases rehabilitation begins before the brace comes off.
