Calgary’s Best Pre and Post-Surgical Rehabilitation Physiotherapists
It’s no secret that the road to recovery after surgery is long and challenging. Not only can it be painful, but you have to rebuild muscles and teach joints and muscles how to move again. Post-surgical rehabilitation is often slow, but physiotherapy after surgery has been proven to help speed up recovery. There is also evidence that visiting a physiotherapist before the surgery can help recovery time as well. Your physiotherapist can help you build the appropriate muscles and prepare your body to bounce back, quickly.
Your physiotherapist is likely to become one of your best friends in the months following surgery. At Panther Sports Medicine, our positive and compassionate staff understand what you’re going through and are committed to creating a treatment plan that will get you back to your activities as quickly as possible. They work closely with Calgary’s orthopaedic surgeons and their clinics, getting information about your individual surgery and your doctor’s recommendations on recovery. They also take the time to get to know you and your recovery goals so that they can create a personalized plan that considers your medical and lifestyle needs.
Our team will also provide advice on how to reduce the risk of re-injury. All our Calgary physiotherapy clinics have braces and products to help with your recovery and keep you injury-free.

Panther Sports Medicine has a clinical association with several orthopaedic surgeons in Calgary. We work closely with them when we believe one of our clients could benefit from surgery. Call us to book a pre-orthopaedic surgeon consultation today.
Our Calgary physiotherapists will do an initial assessment, including a review of your doctor’s prescribed recovery plan, as well as a questionnaire which covers the cause the injury and your lifestyle and regular activities. Once they have a better understanding of the surgery, they will develop a personalized rehabilitation plan with a clear path to recovery. Treatment plans will include exercise that will restore circulation, strengthen muscle, increase mobility and improve coordination. Your treatment plan will have specific strengthening and stretching exercises that can be done at home, and will gradually increase in intensity.
In addition to muscle physiotherapy, your physiotherapist may recommend additional treatment to help support recovery. Any one of our Calgary physiotherapy clinics is able to provide these additional post-surgery treatments options:
