Recovery from injury can be a long and complex process. Whether it is rehabilitation from surgery or returning to sport after an injury the journey twists and turns on a daily basis sometimes. It can easily be blamed on poor therapy or poor compliance but sometimes it is just your bodies way of adapting.
As you build strength, re-activation or mobility it is a balancing act. We give you exercises with instruction on how many and how often for a reason! It is one of the most difficult aspects of a physiotherapists job, knowing what needs to be done to make a difference, and actually seeing patients do it!
While advice is an integral part of treatment, so is reassurance. We have often seen your injury before, from start to finish and can reassure you that while unexpected problems arise; smart programming, treatment planning and regular re-assessment will minimise serious concerns. Just a speed bump!
Different tissues have different healing rates and it is because of this that we can often provide an indication of time frames, but it is essential we take ALL of your circumstances into account.
We pride ourselves in educating our patients and being available for your questions and concerns. So, if you have any get in touch.
