Understanding Physio in Pre & Post-Op Care

The Integral Role of Physiotherapy in Surgical Care

Pre-operative physio, or “prehabilitation”, aims to enhance your physical condition before surgery, leading to better post-surgery outcomes. It includes exercises to improve strength, mobility, and overall fitness, reducing the risk of post-operative complications.

Post-operative physio begins immediately after surgery, focusing on pain management, wound healing, and regaining movement and strength. This dual approach ensures a holistic recovery journey, facilitating a quicker return to daily activities​​.

Benefits of Pre & Post-Op Physiotherapy

Maximising Recovery and Minimising Complications

Our pre-op physiotherapy programs prepare your body for surgery, potentially reducing hospital stays and rehabilitation costs. Post-op physiotherapy is essential in managing pain, swelling, and regaining function. It includes exercises to restore movement, strength training for weakened muscles, and techniques to improve circulation. This comprehensive care minimises the risk of blood clots, muscle atrophy, and other post-surgical complications, ensuring a smooth transition back to normal life​​​​.

Pre & Post-Op Physiotherapy FAQs

Pre-operative physiotherapy prepares patients for surgery, while post-operative physiotherapy aids in recovery, focusing on pain management, restoring function, and preventing complications.

Before surgery, physiotherapists improve patients’ physical condition to enhance surgical outcomes. After surgery, they focus on pain relief, regaining mobility, strength, and overall function.

A pre-operative assessment includes evaluating movement patterns, strength, and overall physical fitness, setting rehabilitation goals, and designing exercise programs tailored to the patient’s surgical needs.

Post-surgical physiotherapy involves treatments and exercises to manage pain, reduce swelling, improve mobility, and strengthen muscles, facilitating a patient’s return to normal activities and lifestyle.

The benefits include faster recovery, reduced pain and swelling, improved joint mobility and muscle strength, and a decreased risk of post-operative complications like blood clots.

Physiotherapy often starts immediately after surgery, focusing on early mobilisation, pain management, and preventing complications, with the intensity and type of therapy gradually increasing as recovery progresses.
