Prehabilitation during Covid-19

By Damian Cocciolone


Covid-19 has had a dramatic impact on the day to day lives of the people of the Moreton Bay region and the world. With the postponement of non-urgent surgeries indefinitely. This has left many people with musculoskeletal ailments waiting for life altering surgery and an unknown timeframe.

  • Total Hip Arthroplasty
  • Total Knee Arthroplasty
  • Total Shoulder Arthroplasty
  • ACL reconstruction
  • Arthroscopic knee and ankle procedures

Are amongst the procedures that have been put indefinitely on hold. Improving function, range and strength pre-operatively by partaking in a structured prehabilitation program has long demonstrated better outcomes for the patient in their post operative recovery.
