Not all bone and joint injuries require surgery.
Due to risks of surgery, elective surgery is only undertaken as a last resort and after a patient has failed to improve their joint function after completing a physiotherapist supervised non-operative rehab program.
We do not host, recommend or endorse any protocol that is posted here, but instead provide links to where surgeons and physiotherapists have posted their non-operative and post-operative protocols.
If you have any questions regarding a protocol, please contact a physiotherapist or surgeon for a copy a protocol they recommend.
