Pre, Post and failed Surgical conditions, Surgical suitability

Hip or knee joint replacement for arthritis, spinal surgery for back pain…..the decision to have surgery is not an easy one, nor a guaranteed solution to your problem.

In many cases a conservative approach which includes Physiotherapy and therapeutic exercise like Clinical Pilates, can be equally, if not more effective in avoiding expensive surgery, and managing your problem.

At DMA our Physiotherapists assess your problem with specific screening and treatment methods which can help decide whether surgery is in fact the right option for you.

Should surgery be the best option, exercise based “Prehab” will help prepare you for a speedy recovery afterwards. In the new age of health reform stronger primary care programs, including exercise based physiotherapy, will play a major role with screening “hospital gate” patients.
