ABOUT THE SERVICE

Undergoing physiotherapy treatment before or after surgery will help you to regain strength and flexibility, making your recovery process shorter and less challenging.

Stay Active Rehabilitation’s pre- and post-surgery therapists provide one-on-one, evidence-based physiotherapy treatment sessions to help you return to normal activities.

Proactive rehabilitation treatments conveniently located in North York and downtown Toronto will ensure you are in optimal condition before the surgery to speed up your recovery and reduce the risk of side effects. In many cases, our patients can fully recover and return to their desired activities with little or no pain, no longer requiring surgical intervention.​

Physiotherapy is Beneficial for Many Injuries and Surgery Types

The rehabilitative process depends on the injury and type of surgery. We help patients recover and rehabilitate from a variety of orthopaedic post-operative procedures, including:

  • Knee, hip and shoulder joint replacements
  • Reconstruction of any one or more of the four major knee ligaments: anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL)
  • Arthroscopic knee surgeries (such as meniscectomies and meniscal repairs)
  • Ligament and tendon repair, including Achilles tendon repairs
  • Arthroscopic hip surgeries (such as labral repairs)
  • Nerve releases (such as cubital tunnel, radial tunnel, carpal tunnel, and tarsal tunnel)
  • Neck and back surgery (such as fusions, laminectomy, decompression and discectomy)
  • Nerve compression release
  • Bone or joint fusion (arthrodesis)
  • Tendon transfers
  • Surgical fixation of fractures, including open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), is a two-part surgery used to fix broken bones where the broken bone is reduced (put back into place) and an internal fixation device is placed on the bone (e.g., screws, plates, rods or pins) to hold the bone together
  • Shoulder post-surgical recovery for rotator cuff tears, labral tears, superior labrum anterior and posterior (SLAP) tear or lesion, arthroscopy and more
