Home physiotherapy helps to maximize range of motion, regain strength, and restore normal movement patterns.

An unfortunate surgery and trauma can severely limit your mobility and also impact your quality of life and those around you. A physiotherapist can help recover normal physical function and optimize surgical outcomes.

Treatment emphasizes scar tissue mobilization, pain management, muscle strengthening, gait training, and home exercises. Physiotherapy intervention typically involves manual therapy, soft tissue release, electrical modalities, self-care education, therapeutic exercise, and posture and gait correction.

Some common surgery and trauma conditions that can be treated include:

  • Hip and knee replacement
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Low back surgery
  • Sports injuries
  • Amputation
  • Fractures
  • Burns
  • Falls
