Pre-Hab Program

Act now, recover faster.

The Pre-Hab Program at St. John's Rehab combines education and exercise to help you prepare for surgery and take control of your future rehabilitation.

For one hour each week for eight weeks, participants work with our rehabilitation experts on a combination of exercises that will help prevent further de-conditioning. Know in advance what to expect following your surgery with a dedicated education session that will guide you through your upcoming rehabilitation process.

Program cost: $100 per session. Each session includes 8 classes. Fees do not include parking.
