Our physiotherapists will work with you both before and after surgery within any guidelines provided by your surgeon.  They can also provide you with some “in hospital” therapy.  It is preferable to see a physiotherapist before your surgery to begin exercises important for rehabilitation.

Our occupational therapist can advise you on adapting your daily life at home, at work and out in the community after your surgery.  This could also involve arranging adaptive equipment for you.
