I have looked on the internet and unable to find an article explaining the physiotherapy techniques required. There are a couple of books available through Amazon that may assist - for example: Animal physiotherapy: assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of animals.
Swimming may help in assisting to prevent muscle atrophy of the hind legs. You should also consider Glucosamine supplements.
As you know surgery is the ideal solution - try and discuss a payment plan with your vet an pay him over the year. Alternatively, seek the help from a welfare society and give a generous donation.
I hope this helps
