Hip & Knee Replacement Programs

following hip or knee surgery at
Prairie Trail Physiotherapy!

There are new exciting changes to the funding structure in Manitoba, with regards to physiotherapy services for post operative management of  knee and hip joint replacements!!

Manitoba Health is now offering coverage of up to 6 physiotherapy visits or up to $540, whichever comes first, for those who have had a total hip or knee replacement surgery since January 1st, 2023. As per Manitoba Health, if  you have your own third party insurance coverage, that has to be utilized first before the post op funding can be used. If you do not have any 3rd party insurance then the post op funding can be utilized immediately.   

Our knee and hip programs are the same one-on-one treatment that you would receive with any physiotherapy session in our facility, however the goal is helping those that are fresh out of one of these surgeries to recover and receive the care they need. We have been running these programs with great success for the last ten years! 

The goal being to encourage patients to attend and optimize their mobility and strength in the most important time frame after surgery. As expected, an in clinic exercise routine will be included.
