Treatment and treatment plans offered by physiotherapists have all been rigorously tested and thoroughly researched. So, you can rest assured their suggestions are all geared towards getting you heathy and well again.

Following the at-home exercise plan can help prevent further problems from occurring or from the same injury reoccurring.
