Evidence shows that informed clients are more likely to adhere to exercise programs and/or engage in activity modifications as necessary, thereby increasing the likelihood of successful treatments. We take the time to explain the nature of injury to the client, the aims of treatment and use a variety of aids e.g charts/anatomical models of various joints, to complement our own explanations.
Home exercises are individualised and easy to understand step by step booklets are provided where necessary to allow the client follow a structured exercise plan at home in order to get the best out of each treatment.
