Pre and Postoperative Rehabilitation

Surgery is generally the last step in the management of any condition and is typically reserved for when more conservative measures have failed to produce the desired outcomes. At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy we are experienced in both inpatient and outpatient management and rehabilitation following a wide range of surgical interventions.

Pre-operative physiotherapy is important to ensure you get the best possible outcomes from your procedure. In general, prior to surgery, patients generally experience many months of pain and reduced activity causing muscles to weaken, weight gain and balance and fitness to deteriorate. At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy we will walk you through your upcoming procedure, outline expected outcomes and recovery timeframes, keep joints moving efficiently through hands on techniques, as well as provide you with a tailored pre-operative exercise and mobility program appropriate to your pain and fitness levels to ensure you are in the best possible condition for surgery.

Appropriate post-operative management is essential for achieving optimal outcomes and recovery times from the surgery. Your rehabilitation at Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy will include a combination of manual (hands-on) therapy, exercise rehabilitation (hydrotherapy, home exercises, gym-based rehabilitation) and advice on appropriate activities to get you back doing the things you love sooner.

At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy, we understand the importance of a holistic approach to rehabilitation. Our team is committed to providing comprehensive care, addressing not only physical but also emotional and psychological aspects of recovery.
