Bracing can be helpful post-surgery, post-injury, and in situations where restriction of movement is needed for recovery. It can be fitted to almost any place on the body in need of stabilization. Braces are most commonly fitted to wrists, hands and knees. The flexibility and type of brace depends on the specific needs of your condition; hinged braces for example would allow the knee a greater range of motion so that it can move in a manner closer to the natural motion of the joint.
Did you know most extended health insurance companies cover the full cost of braces?
Post-Operative Rehabilitation Physiotherapy, sometimes called Post-Surgical Physiotherapy, is a treatment plan for patients who are undergoing surgery.

Our experienced physiotherapists are already familiar with the needs of post-op patients and are prepared with specific rehabilitation sessions to get you better, faster.
Did you know that post-op physiotherapy can help you return to your activities of daily life faster?
