Undergoing a surgery of any kind can be difficult, and stressful on your body. The recovery process is crucial, and can sometimes seem like a daunting task. If you’ve had orthopaedic surgery, your physiotherapy will impact the ultimate result you achieve.

There is often a pre-established guideline or protocol in place that your surgeon will want you to follow in the months after your surgery. Your physiotherapist should be familiar with these protocols, and will tailor them to fit your individual needs. Changes may be made based on how your body is responding to the treatment and healing process.

In a general sense, your post-operative physiotherapy treatment will consist of three stages: Early recovery, Strength and Range of Motion (ROM), and Functional Restoration.
