Pre and Post Operative Rehab Burlington
Pre and Post Operative Rehab
Rehabilitation is an important part of the healing process following surgery. It helps you regain strength and movement in the affected area and can speed up your recovery.
Two main types of rehabilitation are Pre operative and Post operative
- Pre-surgical rehab or pre-operative rehabilitation is done before surgery, these are also known as preoperative physical therapy and help you to prepare for the procedure and recover afterward. Preoperative physiotherapy may involve exercises to improve your strength and range of motion, as well as education about what to expect during and after surgery.
- Postoperative rehabilitation is done after surgery, these are also known as post-surgical rehab and helps you to recover from the procedure and return to your normal activities. This may involve exercises to improve your strength and range of motion, as well as education about what to expect during and after surgery.
Your doctor or physical therapist will design a pre and post-surgical physical therapy or a rehabilitation program specifically for you, based on the type of surgery you have had or your upcoming surgery and your individual needs.
If you are having orthopedic surgery, your doctor recommending either of the rehab programs is high as it boosts your recovery process and reduces pain.
Total Knee Replacement
Here at Procure, we understand that having a total knee replacement (TKR) can be a daunting experience. We also appreciate that different people will have different levels of mobility and function before surgery which is why we tailor our care to meet your individual needs and expectations.
Most people who undergo a TKR will have at least some pain and stiffness in their knees beforehand. This may make it difficult for you to perform daily activities such as going up and down stairs, getting in and out of a car, or even walking short distances. You may also have noticed that your knee ‘gives way’ from time to time, making you feel unsteady on your feet.
The aim of a TKR is to relieve pain and improve function. It is a very successful operation, with most of the people reporting an improvement in their symptoms afterward.
Total Hip Replacement
Total hip replacement (THR) is a surgical procedure to replace your hip’s damaged or worn-out parts with new artificial components. It is usually carried out when other treatments, such as pain-relieving medication and physiotherapy, have not worked or are no longer effective in managing your hip pain.
A THR is a major operation and, like all major surgery, there are some risks involved. However, the vast majority of people who have a THR go on to enjoy an improved quality of life with little or no hip pain. Patients undergoing total hip replacement can start their post-surgical rehabilitation the very next day. Taking post-operative care is also important for a better recovery.
Ligament repair surgery is usually carried out to treat a torn or ruptured ligament. The most common type of ligament injury is an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.
ACL injuries can occur as a result of a sudden twisting motion of the knee, or from a fall or direct blow to the knee. They are relatively common in contact sports such as rugby and football but can also happen in other sports such as skiing.
ACL injuries often cause pain and swelling in the knee joint, and can make it difficult to walk or put weight on your leg. In some cases, you may also hear a ‘popping’ sound when the injury occurs.
If you have an ACL injury, you may be offered surgery to repair the ligament. The aim of surgery is to stabilize the knee joint and help you regain the full function of your leg.
The Bankart procedure is a type of surgery used to treat a dislocated shoulder. It is also known as an arthroscopic Bankart repair or a minimally invasive Bankart repair.
A dislocated shoulder is an injury in which your upper arm bone (humerus) comes out of its socket in your shoulder blade (scapula). This can happen as a result of a fall, direct blow, or sudden twist to the shoulder.
A dislocated shoulder is usually very painful and can make it difficult to move your arm. In some cases, the dislocation may also damage other structures around your shoulder, such as ligaments or muscles.
If you have a dislocated shoulder, you may be offered surgery to repair the damage. The aim of surgery is to stabilize your shoulder joint and help you regain the full function of your arm.
Slap Tear Repair
slap tear is a type of shoulder injury that affects the supraspinatus tendon. This is the tendon that connects your shoulder blade to your upper arm bone (humerus).
The supraspinatus tendon helps to lift your arm up and away from your body. It also stabilizes your shoulder joint when you move your arm.
Slap tear extends into the muscle around it. They are relatively rare but can occur as a result of a fall, direct blow, or sudden twist to the shoulder.
Nerve Release Procedures
A nerve release is a type of surgery used to treat entrapment neuropathies. Entrapment neuropathies are conditions that cause compression or damage to a nerve, resulting in pain, numbness, or weakness.
The most common type of entrapment neuropathy is carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a condition that causes compression of the median nerve in your wrist. Other types of entrapment neuropathies include ulnar nerve entrapment and radial nerve entrapment.
If you have entrapment neuropathy, you may be offered surgery or electrical stimulation to release the compressed nerve. The aim of surgery is to relieve your symptoms and help you regain the full function of your affected limb.
Fracture surgery is a type of operation used to treat broken bones. It is also known as orthopedic surgery.
The most common type of fracture is a broken bone. Bones can break as a result of a fall, direct blow, or sudden twist. Fractures can also occur as a result of osteoporosis, a condition that weakens bones and makes them more susceptible to breakage.
If you have a fracture, you may be offered surgery to repair the damage. The aim of surgery is to stabilize the bone and help it heal in the correct position. This will help you regain the full function of your affected limb.

Most people will start to feel relief from pain and inflammation within a few sessions. However, the length of time it takes to see results will vary depending on the condition being treated
The frequency of treatments will also vary depending on the condition being treated. Most people will have electrotherapy 1-2 times per week for 4-6 weeks.
The effects of electrotherapy are usually short-term. Some people may experience long-term relief from pain and inflammation..
During a session, you will be asked to remove any jewellery or metal objects. The physiotherapist will then attach electrodes to the skin. The electrodes will send electrical impulses to the body. You may feel a tingling sensation or a slight buzzing sensation. You should not feel any pain. If you do, let the physiotherapist know. You will then be asked to relax and let the machine do its work. You may be asked to exercise or move around during the session.
