Sometimes, Preventing Surgery Altogether. So, You Can Stop Worrying And Focus on A Fit and Healthy Future

Watch this video to find out how Physio For Surgery gets better results - using advanced technology and 21st-century physiotherapy techniques that were previously only available to professional athletes.



Who Is Running the Show?

You or your body?

  • Are injuries or chronic pain dictating what you can and can’t do?
  • Are you anxious about surgery or what happens afterwards?
  • Missing out? Frustrated about losing your independence?

Physio For Surgery Helps You Take Back Control, Reduce Pain, And Potentially Prevent Surgery Altogether.

Undergoing major surgery changes your life in various ways. In remarkable ways, once you heal. But the bit in the middle – preparing for surgery and afterwards before you fully recover – is a mental and physical challenge.

And without a good physio, you’re going nowhere fast. Instead, you’re immobilized and stuck in limbo – eating ice cream and fast food, watching endless movies and shows on netflix.


You can’t work, walk, or work out.

It's Groundhog Day every damn day.

That’s why physio before and after surgery – specifically, the high-tech kind that pro-athletes use such as Anti-Gravity Treadmills, the Game Ready System and Blood Flow Restriction. The type we provide is an integral part of recovery when you value your time, prioritize your health, and have “stuff” to do.

Downtime?  What downtime? We’ll have you back in your running shoes before Netflix has time to say, “Are you still watching?” 3 episodes in.

Surgery Prevention, Recovery and Rehab Using High-Tech Equipment and 21st Century Thinking

In most cases, we’re able to help you avoid the surgeon’s table altogether. But if that’s not possible, studies confirm that physio after surgery helps speed up the recovery process. It also plays a vital role in pain management – helping to reduce your dependence on pain meds (or avoid them altogether). But there are many other benefits when you work with Physio For Surgery in Markham:

  • We reduce your pain.
  • Lower your risk of post-surgical complications.
  • Increase your mobility.
  • Improve your post-surgery performance – and get you back on the track, field, pitch, or rink, even when it feels impossible.

And we strengthen your muscles and prevent post-surgical wasting and potential declines in heart and lung capacity. Plus, there are unexpected benefits, like:

Increasing your body’s natural product of anti depressants and feel-good hormones, regaining your lost independence and confidence, and getting your active, pre-injury life back as quickly as humanly possible.

Did we mention we serve a great double-double, too? We also have a tv with every channel so if you are worried you're going to miss the game or the show, we promise you wont!

About Nicholas Halkidis

Company Owner and Clinic Owner

Nicholas Halkidis is the founder at Physio For Surgery.

Nick is an Athletic Therapist, Registered Massage Therapist and Certified Medical Acupuncturist. He has worked with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Team Canada Rugby, and Team Canada Baseball’s Junior National Team.

Nick has extensive experience treating high-performance athletes with pioneering treatment techniques and state-of-the-art equipment through his work with Baseball Canada and other sporting teams. But after six years working in Sports Medicine, Nick decided to move into private patient care to bring those same techniques and high-tech rehabilitation equipment to the weekend warriors, amateur athletes, and self-confessed couch potatoes in the GTA – because that’s where he can make the most significant difference.

What Our Clients Say About Physio For Surgery

In her 40's, Markham

“After my hip surgery I started seeing Nick. I use his treadmill, which has been amazing because it can reduce the weight that I'm putting on my hips. I can learn to walk properly again, because I haven't walked pain-free in over two years. So that's been a great experience.”


In his 20's, Markham

“I tore my Achilles tendon over the course of the summer playing soccer. The biggest impact I noticed personally was hopping on the antigravity treadmill. This clinic is probably one of the most thorough. I feel like the results from here are top-notch and I feel like it's the best”

Anna Headshot

“When I met with my surgeon to remove my cast the surgeon remarked to me that he felt my recovery process was further along than he thought I should be. It can be attributed to Nick and the work that we're doing here.”
