Education: Understanding how and why you are experiencing symptoms such as spasm, pain or weakness can help you to treat and cope with these more easily. Your therapist can help you understand and manage any symptoms or translate information about your injury/illness.
Program: Generally, an ongoing exercise program is needed to maintain or continue to improve range, strength and comfort. Your therapist can be part of this ongoing program, or teach you how to achieve this independently.
Assistance: Some activities or exercises are difficult to complete independently, at first a therapist can assist with exercises and movements, or teach family and carers how to help you.
Equipment: Get the right equipment for the task. Sometimes, just using the right tool can make a difficult job much easier. Your therapist can help you navigate the equipment available.
