After a thorough assessment, your physiotherapist will prescribe you an exercise program which is individually tailored to put you on the right pathway of rehabilitation. Over the course of your recovery, it will be regularly reviewed and updated by your physiotherapist to ensure that you have the very best program.
Maintaining adherence to your exercise program even in the short term will provide you with pain relief, increasing your freedom of movement and strength. At this point you may consider the program to have served its purpose, and that you no longer need it. However by ending your exercise at this point will place you at a higher risk of your original concern returning, or for a new one to begin. A short term approach to managing your concern will give you just that… a short term solution.
Evidence continuously shows us that exercise is the best way to achieve long-term pain free movement, to prevent injury recurrence, and it can also be successfully used to manage, as well as in the prevention, of many chronic conditions. Additional benefits include improved sleep quality and energy levels, improved mood and concentration, blood glucose and insulin management …(and many, many more!).
A long term commitment to exercise is the best decision that you can make for your health. Our bodies are designed to move, and they are happiest and healthiest when engaging in regular exercise – a strong body is a Life Ready body!
