Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Assessment, treatment, and guidance for those recovering from surgery.

Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Anyone recovering from surgery will benefit from a rehabilitation program

The evidence is in: following surgery you have to get moving.

The physiotherapists at Pinpoint have worked in the hospital setting and are skilled at progressing you through post surgical rehabilitation – at a pace that is appropriate for you.

We commonly help rehabilitate back surgeries, ACL repairs, total hip and knee arthoplasties (replacements), hip fractures, rotator cuff repairs, and many different types of fractures.

Common post-surgical rehabilitation conditions:

  • joint replacements including total hip and knee arthroplasty
  • back surgery including laminectomy and discectomy
  • fractures including those of the wrist, foot, or hip
  • joint dislocations such as those caused by trauma to the shoulder

If you are unsure what exercises you should be doing, or when to progress those exercises to the next level, ask your surgeon if they recommend that you see a physiotherapist. Keep in mind, though, that you do not require a doctor’s note to see a physio.

Getting Started with Post Surgical Rehab

Book a Physiotherapy Treatment

Ready to book your physiotherapy appointment? Here are some points to consider:

  • your first visit will consist of a thorough, hands-on assessment as well as education and exercise guidance
  • on subsequent visits your exercise will be checked and modified as is appropriate
  • it may be most effective to augment a pure, exercise-based approach with other hands-on treatments (this can be discussed with your physiotherapist)

Testimonial for Pinpoint Physiotherapy

Joe took time assessing my injury and how it has impacted my life. That is one of the things that makes Joe such a wonderful physiotherapist, is that he has the skills – and takes the time – to diagnosis his patient’s injury.
