Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

Do you have a scheduled surgery?

You can recover faster with post-surgical rehabilitation!

Many people participate in post-surgical (also known as post-operative) rehabilitation exercises as part of their recovery from surgery. Our physiotherapists are trained in the most advanced post-operative treatment programs, ensuring that you heal properly and quickly!

Our therapists at MSK Health and Performance will collaborate with you to create a post-surgical rehabilitation plan that is tailored to your specific requirements. Rather than using a generic program, our therapist will gather information about your previous abilities and desired future goals to ensure that our programs are tailored to your specific needs.

Book an appointment at our physiotherapy, chiropractic, and registered massage clinic in Vancouver Kitsilano, Downtown Vancouver or Burnaby Metrotown to learn more about the advantages of post-surgical rehabilitation!

What are the benefits of post-surgical rehabilitation in Vancouver & Burnaby, BC?


Our physiotherapist will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to assess the surgical site and the areas that may be affected by your surgery, regardless of the type of surgery you have. We examine the entire person to identify all of the factors that may affect the outcome of your surgery.

Our skilled team will assist you in identifying any impairments you may be experiencing and will teach you effective strategies for overcoming these limitations. Early on, the focus will be on relieving pain and reducing swelling. We will also address any restrictions or limitations in your range of motion in order to get you moving as soon as possible with as little pain as possible.

To help manage your pain, our clinicians employ manual therapy techniques and modalities. We will advise you on how to manage postoperative pain at home.

As you progress, we’ll concentrate on restoring your mobility and strength. We will use braces, splints, and assistive devices to aid in your recovery, as well as any other strategy that will help you return to normal function as soon as possible!

Your rehabilitation plan will include suggestions for any lifestyle and/or dietary changes you can make to improve your long-term health, prevent future damage, and avoid further surgery.

Our physiotherapists and chiropractors in Vancouver Kitsilano, Downtown Vancouver or Burnaby Metrotown will design a personalized recovery plan to assist you in healing and returning to your everyday life.

Reducing the need for medication following surgery

The possibility of reducing or eliminating the need for prescription pain medications such as opioids is one of the most compelling reasons to choose post-surgical physiotherapy.

Physiotherapists, registered massage therapists and chiropractors are particularly effective at implementing pain-relieving treatments. Our therapists are trained in the most advanced pain management techniques, such as manual therapy techniques, dry needling treatments, modalities (such as electrical stimulation and laser therapy), taping, splinting, and braces, to relieve pain and maximize function.

Our physiotherapists, registered massage therapists and chiropractors at MSK Health and Performance in Vancouver Kitsilano, Downtown Vancouver and Burnaby Metrotown will work with you to reduce your postoperative pain so you can get back to doing what you love!
