Benefits of Pre-Surgery Exercise / Therapy

Starting rehabilitation before surgery helps prepare the body for the procedure. It also creates an optimal environment to promote surgical recovery. Your surgeon may even recommend a specific set of fitness conditions you should meet before surgery.

The multi-disciplinary team at Main Street Health can offer a personalized, comprehensive surgery preparation plan.

Preoperative rehabilitation helps to:

  • minimize swelling
  • improve range of motion
  • develop cardiovascular fitness
  • increase strength and endurance
  • promote weight loss (if necessary)
  • encourage functional movement patterns
  • Our professional therapists will work with your team — doctors, specialists, and/or insurance providers — to help you properly prepare for surgery.

    Benefits of Post-Surgery Exercise / Therapy

    After surgery, early rehabilitation can increase the chances of successful outcomes. Post-surgery rehabilitation focuses on controlling inflammation and promoting mobility.

    The professional therapists at Main Street Health will develop a personalized recovery and rehabilitation program to help ensure optimal recovery.

    After surgery, exercise and other therapies help to:

    • minimize scar tissue
    • increase range of motion
    • identify and correct improper movements (compensation)
    • prepare for the safe return to work, sports, or other activities
    • restore speed, agility, and power to pre-surgical levels when possible

    With multiple treatment options under one roof, Main Street Health is ideally suited to assist your recovery and rehabilitation. If you’re about to have or recently had surgery, book your pre or postoperative assessment.
