Post-operative Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy plays an important role in optimizing surgical results in the lead up to surgery and during the recovery process. Enhancing your muscle condition and an understanding of good spinal mechanics can help to maximize post-operative outcomes. Our pre-operative consults includes a thorough history and physical examination to determine a baseline, important do's and don'ts for specific surgeries are outlined, collars or braces are fitted if required and the physical and recovery expectation are set for various stages in the post-operative period.

Our post operative consults are tailored to the individual's physical recovery and specific surgery. We are experts at managing patients who have undergone microdiscectomy, disc replacements, and fusion procedures in every region of the spine and understand the importance of the right exercises at the right time. Extensive spinal education is given and we will strategically guide you to ensure a maximal recovery.
