Knee Pre Operative Exercise Program
- Reduce your risk of post-operative complications
- Improve your cardiac and lung health
- Prepare your muscles for the rigours of the surgery and afterwards
- Reduce your recovery times
- Improve your overall recovery
- Quickly return to work, normal activities or sport
This package will support you right from where you are right up to the day of your surgery. It will go through all of the key areas that are often overlooked when it comes to improving your overall fitness as well as the strength of your knee and all the muscles in your whole leg.
Strengthening exercises build muscles around joints, easing the burden on those joints.
The research & our clinical experience supports that physiotherapy prescribed exercises before your surgery can significantly help with recovery afterwards (ie improved confidence, shorter rehab times & better results). This responsible proactive approach is called ‘ prehabilitation’ (Pre-hab-ili-tation) and helps prepare your body for the surgery. It also helps you to familiarise yourself with a number of exercises that you will be using at various stages after your surgery as some people can find exercises challenging to do.
Some videos will provide you with explanations about how to minimise swelling or use crutches correctly if needed. Others will look at how to get your knee feeling looser. However, most of the Program is focussed on building strength, improving walking and regaining one’s independence through a gradual step by step process.
There are 3 phases of increasing difficulty. There is a live chat feature so you can have our support every step of the way.
