Exercise prescription is a vital part of physiotherapy. Whether it be your neck, back, shoulder or ankle, the exercises and your understanding of these exercises are the most important part of a physiotherapy treatment session.
Exercise programs can consist of; stretching, strengthening, balance or coordination activities.
Not all exercises are good for you, for example holding a plank position for 2 minutes for the majority of people is not a good exercise to strengthen your core if you have a back injury. This is why, when injured, it’s important to have exercises prescribed and explained to you by a professional to help get you back on track with as little risk as possible for re-injury.
