Benefits of Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation before and after surgery is essential to a successful and smooth recovery. Surgery can be considered a form of trauma, and the ways in which your body reacts will vary. Even minor and uncomplicated surgical procedures can have a major impact on your health and wellbeing. This is why post surgical rehab is essential.

Going through an Individualised post-surgical rehab with a licensed physiotherapist can minimize your pain, speed up the healing process, and decrease the chances of developing postoperative problems that can negatively impact your long-term health.


Sometimes non-invasive treatment techniques for health conditions or injuries just aren’t effective at providing pain relief. If this happens, many physicians will recommend surgery to correct the problem.

Some common conditions that may lead to surgery include, but are not limited to:

  • ACL, MCL, and/or meniscus repairs
  • Total hip replacements
  • Heart surgery – ablations, stent placements, cardiac pacemakers, etc.
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Full or partial knee replacements

In order to avoid re-injury, recurring dysfunction, and to help the healing process along, you’ll most likely have to relearn how to do certain tasks such as walking or getting dressed. We are equipped at teaching patients how to safely perform these everyday activities while following critical post-operative guidelines. These guidelines are often outlined by your surgeon and could include sternal precautions, hip precautions, spine precautions, or instructing you not to put too much weight on a certain part of your body.
