Post Surgery Rehabilitation

Conservative Injury Management

Any person undergoing surgery is exposed to many risks, including infection, DVT and anesthetic related complications. We understand that many patients may benefit from conservative management to rehabilitate an injury before surgery needs to be seriously considered.

Artius is able to offer you:

  • Evidence based and outcome driven rehabilitation and injury management services
  • Gym and Pilates clinic
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Other complementary services, including dietetics and Psychology, to help manage other contributing lifestyle and social factors affecting your injury

PreHab (Pre-Surgical Rehabilitation)

We understand that conservative management is not an appropriate intervention for many conditions and injuries, and that surgical intervention is necessary.

In these cases, our Physiotherapists are able to offer you a range of pre-operative services aimed at ensuring you have the best preparation for and rehabilitation after surgery to ensure you have the best post operative result. We can provide you:
