Pre & Post-Operative Recovery

GoodRecovery Program

[GoodRecovery Program]

Pre and post-operative fitness

If you’re a candidate for surgery and interested in accelerating your recovery and prolonging the success of your surgery, then the insurance-eligible GoodRecovery Program is for you. It will give you the information and tools you need to make the right personal health care choices and lifestyle changes to achieve the best post-operative results.

Delivered by a team of allied health professionals, the GoodRecovery Program is designed to rapidly restore physical functioning so that you can return to normal activities quickly and safely for as long as possible. The cornerstone of an optimal recovery is effective reconditioning, and not surprisingly, most people need guidance to develop a program that allows them to regain maximum strength, health and independence.

Pre-operative

The pre-operative phase takes you through the main challenge areas to help you manage your condition. You will learn all about:

  • The scope of the procedure
  • Preparing mentally and physically for surgery
  • Post-surgery limitations
  • Joint protection principles and techniques
  • Nutrition and weight management
  • The functioning of any necessary rehabilitative or assistive device
  • Importance of post-surgery mobility

Post-operative

Following surgery, you begin your reconditioning program which may include:

  • Range of motion (ROM) exercises
  • Strengthening and flexibility program
  • Movement re-education program to quickly eliminate the need for assistive devices 

You will receive a customized home rehabilitation kit and a cold/compression device with instructions for use.

Knee arthroscopy and knee surgery

Knee arthroscopy can give you back your mobility and your independence – but the success of the treatment depends on pre-operative conditioning and post-operative rehabilitation. 

If you’re a candidate for knee arthroscopy, the GoodRecovery Program will help you to regain maximum strength, health and independence as quickly as possible.
