Post-Surgical Spine & Joint Reconstruction in Guelph, Mississauga, & Hamilton

Following surgical procedures, patients are often referred to our physiotherapists to aid in their recovery process and regain strength, function, and mobility. Our highly skilled therapists offer personalized and evidence-based treatment sessions to facilitate the patient’s return to daily activities, work, recreational pursuits, and even competitive sports.

The rehabilitation process is tailored to the specific injury and surgery performed. We assist patients in recovering from various orthopedic post-operative procedures, including –

  • Ligament and tendon repairs (including Achilles tendon)
  • Arthroscopic hip surgeries (such as labral repairs)
  • Nerve releases (e.g., cubital tunnel, radial tunnel, carpal tunnel, tarsal tunnel)
  • Neck and back surgeries (e.g., fusions, laminectomy, decompression, discectomy)
  • Nerve compression release
  • Bone or joint fusion (arthrodesis)
  • Tendon transfers
  • Surgical fixation of fractures (including open reduction and internal fixation)
