Welcome to MOTI Physiotherapy! We created this resource in collaboration with your surgeon to help you achieve the best possible outcomes with your surgery. You will use these workouts as a supplement to what your Physical Therapist develops in your personalized plan of care.
As you prepare for your surgery, you should take the time to schedule your first post-op physical therapy appointment. For optimal continuity of care, your Post-Op Physical Therapy Evaluation should take place 24-48 hours after your surgery, unless otherwise directed by your surgeon.
