Muscles need to be strengthened in a progressive manner for long term maintenance. They also have a memory that needs to be recalled and maintained through stepwise rehab.

  • Step 1 – pain management, basic exercises and precautions to be followed.
  • Step 2 – increasing level of exercises from basic to intermediate level
  • Step 3 – Advance level of exercises

Physiotherapist needs immense patience to treat one sick patient who is already in distress because of his pain.

It’s the aim of physiotherapists to make patients understand that working on PAIN is not the aim of physiotherapy. Pain is just a blanket over the actual root cause. That blanket needs to be removed first and then actual work needs to be started i.e on muscle strengthening and flexibility.

Also, patients’ efforts need to be equal along with the physiotherapist for best outcomes and faster recovery.
