Pre- and post-operative physiotherapy

Jumpstart your recovery

Are you preparing for — or recovering from — an operation? We know how stressful this can be, particularly when it comes to your recovery and knowing when you’ll start feeling like your old self again.

After surgery it’s important to take the necessary time to heal and recover properly. A physiotherapy program can help accelerate your recovery by quickly reducing inflammation and swelling, which will help restore your mobility and promote faster healing.

Whether it’s knee, hip, back, or any other orthopaedic surgery, our physiotherapists are trained to give you a preoperative examination and devise a customised treatment plan for your postoperative care.


Physiotherapy is a crucial component of the post-surgical recovery process. It not only helps you bounce back quicker after surgery so you can return to your regular activities, it will also:

  • Help speed up recovery
  • Reduce pain and swelling
  • Reduce risk of blood clots
  • Improve strength and stability
  • Improve mobility and range of motion
  • Prevent certain post-surgery complications

At Elysian Wellness, our physiotherapists can help guide you through the recovery period for various types of surgery, including:

  • ACL repair
  • Spinal surgery
  • Cardiac surgery
  • Abdominal surgery
  • Hip or knee replacement
  • Cancer resection surgery
  • Dislocated shoulder repair
  • And much more
