Have you been using Curovate before surgery but recently had your surgery and are wondering how to switch to an after surgery recovery plan?

For a step by step guide, with a screen recording taken directly from the Curovate Physical Therapy App, watch the video below to learn how to switch from before surgery rehabilitation to after surgery in the Curovate App.

Curovate, the physical therapy app, can be used for before and after surgery for your recovery at home.

When can I start using Curovate?

You can use the Curovate Physical Therapy App after injury and before surgery. You do not have to wait until after surgery to start using Curovate. In fact, before surgery, there is a lot that you can do to help improve your chances of recovery after surgery. Check out our blogs on exercises to complete before a total knee replacement and ACL prehabilitation to learn more about the importance of exercise rehabilitation before surgery.

How do I switch from one rehabilitation protocol to another?

To switch to after-surgery exercise rehabilitation from before surgery rehabilitation you do not need to create a new Curovate account. There is no need to create a new account or purchase a new subscription. Simply follow the instructions below:

  1. From the app dashboard, select “Profile”
  2. Select “My Protocols”
  3. Select "+Add" on the top left hand corner
  4. You will now be back to the protocol selection screen
  5. Select your new recovery protocol
  6. Enter in your surgery or injury date if applicable
  7. You will now be on the home screen of your new protocol

How can I delete and archive my rehabilitation protocols?

From the current protocol screen you can also delete a protocol if needed:

  1. To delete a protocol, select the “Delete” button on your surgery protocol.
  2. To archive a protocol, select the “Archive” button on your surgery protocol to save it within the app.
  3. For both archiving or deletion, a change screen will appear, from which you select “Yes I’m Sure” to proceed with your archiving or deleting request.
