Back Rehab Post-Surgery 

There are many surgical procedures involving the lower back, including discectomies, laminectomies and spinal fusion surgeries. The goal of most of these surgeries is to remove any excess bone or soft tissue that may be pressing on exiting nerves from the spine or to help stabilize the spine.     

How our physiotherapists can help

 Our physiotherapists will follow your surgeon’s post-op protocol to optimize your recovery after surgery.  Typically, the first phase after surgery is to help with pain-relief and reduce inflammation to the area.  As your surgeon clears you for more activities, gentle hands-on therapy and light exercises will be provided to improve your range of motion and strength.  Emphasis will be placed on improving core stability.  Book an appointment today so that we can get you quickly on the road to recovery!
