According to studies, individuals who participate in pre-operative physiotherapy regain full function and return to their normal routines and sports more rapidly and comfortably than those who don’t. Furthermore, they tend to experience less post-operative discomfort and fewer issues. Participating in pre-habilitation can even lead to a shorter hospital stay.

Our physiotherapists will assess your conditions and suggest you the best physiotherapy approach.
Pre-surgical workouts are widely used in orthopedic surgery for acute injuries, such as an ACL tear, and chronic illnesses like a deteriorated knee awaiting replacement. Both scenarios aim to restore joint mobility, strength, and function. However, with acute wounds, the emphasis is on reducing edema while maintaining mobility, whereas with persistent issues, it’s about correcting compensatory movement patterns that produce discomfort and disability.
