We can offer a tailored exercise program to complement and form an integral part of the treatment program, it is extremely rare that you will not be issued an exercise program as part of your treatment plan.
The key is to progress and change the exercise program as you improve to make sure you do not plateau in your rehabilitation. Your injury is unique to you so your exercise program should be unique to you too.
The aim of the exercise program is to help make the injured structure stronger or increased flexibility, to help improve overall function. There is lots of strong evidence supporting the use of an exercise program.
It’s worth mentioning that quite often some of the exercises you will be given will not be directly for the injured structure, however to help improve strength, flexibility of function of other areas that may be affecting the problem. A great example of this would be if you’re suffering an Achilles problem and you are suffering with weakness within the gluteals, you will be issued exercises to help rehabilitate the Achilles, however you also be issued with a strengthening exercises for the gluteals, with the main aim still to try and help prevent the injury from coming back.
