Pre & Post Operative Care

Your surgeon has managed your injury or illness but this is only the first step on your road to recovery.

Following surgery or fracture management, physiotherapy plays a very important role in managing your pain and rehabilitating you back to a fully functioning level.

At PhysioX, we work closely with surgeons to optimise the intended area of surgery before you go for the surgery. It has been demonstrated that you will achieve better outcomes if you have participated in at least 4-6 weeks of a supervised programme prior to your surgery.
