Strength & Conditioning
Using a combination of body weight and free weight based exercise strength and conditioning exercises can get you strong and balanced enough to prevent future injury.
Julie regularly uses gym balls, thera-bands and wobble cushions which can offer balance re-education. Plus they are a fun and enjoyable way to recover from injury.
As much as Physiotherapy is an exercise based profession, hands on treatment is often necessary to assist in pain management and to build confidence with the injured tissues.
Water therapy can be very effective for early non-weight bearing rehabilitation.
