Some treatments include relaxation techniques, imagery and breathing techniques, and self-management strategies.

With every injury comes a home exercise program that is individualized. Patients will begin with a program that suits them best in their first treatment, and this program will be progressed according to their improvements moving forward. Patients will be discharged at an appropriate time with the tools they need in order to prevent these injuries from coming back.
PATIENT ADVICE & EDUCATION
