Physical & Occupational Therapy Protocols
Therapy is not indicated for every surgery or may not be indicated until a particular point in the healing timetable. If physical or occupational therapy is indicated, you will receive a prescription and a protocol after your procedure when you are discharged. If given a prescription, please start therapy within a week of the surgery. If you need an extra copy, many of the commonly used protocols are here. Please ask the team if you have any questions about the restrictions and therapy that is appropriate for your particular surgery. If your therapist has any questions, please don’t hesitate to have them contact Dr. G and the team.
Remember, the therapist is like a coach: they teach you the exercises and work with you but YOU need to take the responsibility of following through with the home exercise program.
