Prehabilitation (or prehab) involves working with one of our physiotherapist team to prepare, condition and strengthen your body for your operation. We encourage our clients to prepare for an operation the way that an athlete will prepare for an event. Maximising function prior to your operation helps you to maintain a normal level of function during and after your operation.
During prehab, we'll complete a full assessment to understand your symptoms and functional concerns. We'll assess your joint movement, alignment and strength, and create an individualised treatment and exercise programme tailored to you.
