PRE & POST OPERATIVE REHAB

At Physical Evolution, we offer comprehensive pre and post-operative rehabilitation programs by combining the science of Exercise Physiology, Hydrotherapy and MedX rehabilitation equipment to restore optimal function. Our pre-operative care is specially designed by our Exercise Physiologist to help you prior to surgery and improve your outcome after surgery.

The goals of pre-operative care include:

  • Mentally preparing for surgery

 

  • Reducing pain and inflammation prior to operating

 

  • Improving muscular control for faster recovery

 

  • Educating patients on immediate post-surgical exercises and precautions

 

  • Increasing overall well-being and fitness

Our post-operative care programs are designed to promote healing, reduce pain and swelling, restore joint mobility, flexibility and strength. Following surgery, a thorough evaluation will be performed, which will ascertain and set functional goals as well as restore normal movement, flexibility, and function. Physical Evolution utilise various evidence-based techniques including hands-on care tailored specifically to the patient’s needs.

Post-operative treatments include:

  • Exercises for strength, flexibility and increased range of motion

 

  • Posture, balance, and coordination training
