- Exercises form an integral part of any Orthopaedic treatment strategy.
- Your Orthopaedic Surgeon in collaboration with a Physical Therapist would advise you the best combination of exercises which can help improve your condition.
- Be sure to consult your doctor prior to starting any unaccustomed exercise programme.
Always remember that “No pain, No Gain” is not necessarily good for you. If any exercise causes excessive pain, stop immediately and consult your orthopaedician to prevent inflicting further harm.
