Pre/Post-Surgical Rehabilitation


If you're facing the prospect of surgery there are steps you can take — before and after — to minimize the impact on your day-to-day life. In fact, pre/post-surgical rehabilitation from CBI Health Group can be the key to a better health outcome for those preparing for or recovering from shoulder surgery, ACL repair, total knee or hip replacements, other surgeries — and some orthopedic surgeries can be avoided entirely with our proactive approach. Prior to surgery, our therapists can help you improve your range of motion, strength and endurance to allow for faster and more effective recovery after the operation. Post-surgically, we work closely with clients of all ages to focus on mobility, strength and the ability to participate in meaningful daily activities.

There's no question that surgery can be an intimidating prospect and a challenge to recover from, but our pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation specialists can guide you through a personalized plan to ensure a shorter recovery period and the greatest possible return to functional capability. Find out how our patient-first programs can be delivered at home, in the community or at one of our clinics — and how many of our services are covered by healthcare plans, workers' compensation plans, motor vehicle and other insurance plans.

Our specialized surgical rehabilitation programs include:

  • Joint Replacement Physiotherapy Program: Tailored to help you prepare physically for surgery and recovery, examine post-operative expectations for weight bearing, exercises and precautions. Your physiotherapist can begin the teaching process before surgery to ensure you're prepared; afterwards, post-surgery rehabilitation will develop your mobility, strength and the ability to carry out daily tasks.
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome: Treatment for thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) can take the form of either post-surgical support or non-surgical rehabilitation. Our physiotherapists can recommend strategies to help prevent the condition from worsening and start a plan of basic exercises to help build strength, improve posture, reduce pain and restore normal mobility. Post-surgical rehabilitation involves the use of a sling, passive movement exercises and, ultimately, active motion as tissues heal. These posture and strengthening exercises can prevent future TOS problems, modifications can be made for your occupational setting if required.
