Prehabilitation is an exercise program undertaken prior to surgery, designed to:
• Increase strength and range of motion of upper and lower limbs appropriate to post-operative recovery
• Increase balance, endurance and joint awareness
• Increase core strength and upper body strength for greater control of gait aids
• Improve general fitness
With all major musculoskeletal surgery, commitment is required by yourself in the process. To maximize post-operative outcome and to achieve your goals, a concerted approach to prehabilitation provides the best launching pad to a successful recovery.
Following surgery whether it be Arthroscopy, Repair, Joint Reconstruction or Joint Replacement, Sorrento Physiotherapy’s experienced Physiotherapists prescribe and supervise appropriate rehabilitation in our exercise gym.
