What are Physiotherapy Exercises?
Exercises are an essential component to the recovery process of patients with musculoskeletal conditions. If you want your life back, you will have to do the right kind of exercises with your physiotherapist. Our bodies require strengthening, mobility and coordination to move both painlessly and freely.
However, when an injury occurs, certain parts of the body become stiff, weak, and swollen causing both pain and a loss of normal function. You may have experienced this while injuring yourself playing an activity, only to wake up in pain the next morning. You can’t get out of bed because it hurts too much.
