Pre and Post Operative Physiotherapy

Patients awaiting surgery are advised to see their physiotherapist prior, to prepare and help their bodies reach their optimal condition to accelerate recovery post op.


Patients are seen prior to their surgery to:

  • Practice exercises that are to be performed after the surgery
  • Learn about equipment required after the operation
  • Optimise strength and range of movement

  • ACL reconstructions
  • Ankle fusions
