WE NEED A REFERRAL FROM YOUR SURGEON for funded physiotherapy after knee, hip and shoulder replacement operations.

Contact our administration team for more information.
Our physiotherapist will assess your range of motion and level of function after surgery. Physiotherapist’s assessment also Includes a review of your home exercise program and goal setting for optimal recovery. This assessment will help our physiotherapist/kinesiologist team to tailor the exercise program to your level of function and pain tolerance. The physiotherapist will review risk factors that may affect your recovery. Completion of initial assessment by a registered physiotherapist is required prior to participation in Physiomobility’s Hip & Knee Rehabilitation program.
Physiomobility has partnered with local hospitals to improve our clients’ access to quality rehabilitation program before and after their joint replacement. For clients who are referred to Physiomobility through the hospital after their operation, the referring hospital funds the rehab program. In other words, If you qualify for funding, you will participate at no cost to you and Physiomobility will be paid by the hospital.
