POST OPERATIVE

WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE FIRST VISIT

During your first visit, our lovely and helpful front desk staff will welcome you to the clinic. Our highly experienced and friendly therapist will complete an initial assessment to discover what injury you are presenting us with, and how it happened. Following a detailed history and physical assessment, we will determine a proper course of action depending on your goal. One important aspect of recovering from injury is to help educate patients on ways to prevent further aggravation of symptoms.

Treatment intervention could include:

  • Muscle and fascial Release Techniques
  • Laser
  • Electrical modalities (Interfential current IFC, Ultrasound)
  • Performance Taping
  • Joint mobilizations
  • Exercise prescription

POST OPERATIVE SERVICES

After orthopedic surgery, including, but not limited to, shoulder rotator cuff repair, knee ACL/PCL reconstruction, hip or knee replacement, it is likely that you will require post-operative physiotherapy. At My Physio our trained staff will provide an individual rehabilitation plan to reduce pain and inflammation and help restore normal ranges of motion, strength and flexibility. Our goal is to closely monitor your progress in order to provide the most optimal care and recovery to pre-injury status. Our team-based approach will also work closely with the involved surgical staff, keeping them informed as well as communicating with them regarding your progress towards full recovery.

WHAT TO EXPECT

At My Physio, you can expect focussed care incorporating pain management, manual therapies, and targeted exercises to effect optimal function to pre-injury status. Whether it is work or sports related, rehabilitation will include appropriate methods to return you safely to your pre-injury activity.

Pre-surgical rehabilitation intervention is equally important as post-surgical rehabilitation. At My Physio we would recommend consulting with our physiotherapist if surgery is being considered. Our therapists are trained to educate you and physically prepare you for the possible surgical intervention in order to ensure a speedier recovery.
