Clinical Physiotherapy - In Person and Virtual Sessions
Surgery is often only the first step to returning to a normal active life. Once your surgery is complete, you’ll need to strengthen your body and rebuild your muscle in order to make a full recovery. Physiotherapy can be beneficial to patients both before and after major surgeries. We always communicate with your surgeon to develop the most effective treatment plan and will help you manage your injury at home with dedicated exercises.
IS POST-SURGERY REHABILITATION RIGHT FOR ME?
Our post-operative and post-surgery rehabilitation is suited for patients who have recently undergone intensive surgery and are experiencing pain, muscle weakness, reduced mobility, low exercise tolerance, or stiffness. Relevant surgeries can include fractures, joint surgeries, knee or hip replacements, ligament repairs, and more.
Our physiotherapist team can help with:
• Pain relief.
• Reducing swelling.
• Gentle manual therapy to restore joint range of motion.
• Assistance with early walking.
• Prescribing gait aids like walkers or canes and instructing on their use.
• Simple exercises to begin to regain muscle function without disrupting healing.
Vancity Physio's vast knowledge brought me great results. When I began working with them I was on crutches, and today I am so much stronger and can function so much better. I feel that I have jumped leaps and bounds, and I am very excited to utilize my new knowledge.
My therapist put a great deal of time and effort into my rehabilitation, and gave me the tools I needed to move onward and forward.
Ranko has taught me many things about my recovery and has encouraged me every step of the way. His smile and attitude helps to keep me involved and optimistic. I can ask for honesty with him and get it … qualities that reflect more than one healing process— Wendy M.
My Physiotherapist always displayed a lot of patience, encouraged me and was always right beside me as to make sure that I wouldn't fall or hurt myself. The techniques and exercises I learned helped me to improve very quickly… as a result, 1 month post hip replacement surgery I was able to get up and down the many stairs I have in my home with a cane without any problems!— R. Rasman
I wanted to take a moment to write you a note of gratitude for your time and efforts during my recovery. Your attitude, depth of knowledge, and commitment really helped me through one of the roughest times in my life.— M. Goddard
I recently suffered an injury from playing sports. I had a lot of trouble walking without pain but working with Vancity Physio helped me quickly return to what I love doing most. Injuries don't just affect a person physically, but can take an emotional toll. Having a physio who is knowledgeable in their practice, patient with explaining my condition and being personable to work made all the difference in my full recovery.— Fiona Chiu
