Prior to your surgery, our registered physiotherapist will assess you for a Pre-Operative examination to assure that both you and your injury are in best possible condition for the surgery to take place. This includes data collection through precise diagnosis of the location and severity of your pain, your own commitment, current functionality and any room for improvements before the surgery could be conducted. A plan will be deduced to improve the overall condition and to mentally put you at ease regarding the surgery.
Pre-Operative Therapy is essential because!
A new study has found that as few as 1 to 2 sessions of preoperative physical therapy can reduce postoperative care use by 29% for patients undergoing total hip or knee replacement, adding up to health care cost savings of more than £1,000 per individual.
