Post-op Knee Rehabilitation Classes
River East Physiotherapy is excited to be offering group knee classes at our Rothesay location. These classes have been designed to offer people an affordable option for treatment and rehabilitation as they recover from their knee replacement.
Dates: Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 to 12:30. Patients can expect to attend twice weekly for 4-8 weeks depending on how quickly they progress.
Costs: Knee classes are designed to be an affordable option for patients as they cost a fraction of the cost of a regular follow-up. Patients are required to attend a one-time assessment to acquire health information, establish a baseline and understand their personal goals. Following assessment, class sessions are available at a reduced rate.
What to expect: Knee classes consist of timed exercise stations which are tailored to your needs. These exercises will help restore normal range of motion, strength, balance and function. Everybody regains their range of motion at a different rate. For this reason your range of motion will be measured each class so we can monitor how you are progressing. We will also provide each patient with hands-on treatment which can speed progress along. Ice is typically used at the end of each class to help with pain control. There will be up to 6 people attending each class.
Who is appropriate for knee classes?: Patients who have had their surgery are welcome to start classes once their staples have been removed. Patients who are awaiting a knee replacement would also benefit from classes as prehab has been shown to improve outcomes after their surgery.
