If you’re scheduled for a knee, hip, or shoulder surgery, you might be wondering what comes next. Whether it’s a planned elective surgery or an injury that requires rehab, you need to be prepared for what’s ahead. That’s where rehab physiotherapy comes in.

Contrary to popular belief, rehab should start before surgery.

When it comes to any injury or illness, having better function and strength before surgery means you can recover faster. That’s why it’s ideal to get exercises started beforehand so that you have a good understanding of what to expect after surgery and the confidence in how to manage in that early phase when pain and discomfort might be most acute.

Physiotherapists are medical informed scientists of movement, we have the skills and knowledge to help you to negotiate the medical system and help you to get the best function you can out of your body.  The stronger, more flexible and more resilient you can make your muscles, tissues and joints the better your outcomes will be.

Rehab physiotherapy is an essential part of the post-operative process.

It works at reducing pain and swelling, as well as regaining a functional range of movement and strength. The goal is to help you return as quickly, and safely as possible, to work, sport, or everyday life.

At Physio Fundamentals, we believe in the fundamentals of good movement, and that’s what our post-operative rehab program is based on. We help you learn the right techniques to move and function better, which can lead to a faster recovery and less pain.

So, don’t wait for your GP or surgeon to send you to a physiotherapist.

Take charge of your own recovery and book an appointment with us today. You don’t need a referral, and we’re here to help you achieve your goals. Don’t let pain and discomfort hold you back. Start your journey towards better function, less pain, and more life today.
