If your injury is not quite bad enough for surgery, or if you are trying to avoid having a surgery, Shellharbour Sports Physio can tailor a specific physiotherapy program to help you improve your movement and strength in order to delay surgery for as long as possible.
As well as using some hands on treatment, we will ask about you what activities aggravate your pain, so we can make sure we avoid specific movements that may flare-up your injury initially.
Common exercises prescribed for arthritis include:
Exercise/Activities to help assist with weight loss
Range of movement exercises
Exercises for other muscles/joints in your body which may be affecting the injured area
