How long will I need rehabilitation?
It depends on your needs and how quickly you recover. Most patients start out by coming to rehab two to three times each week for at least a month. Every patient is going to be different depending on how bad their condition is.
Is exercise part of rehabilitation?
Yes, but it’s not the only part. Your rehab plan is tailored to your specific injury, as well as to your progress. In the beginning stages, when you’re in the most pain, you perform passive or static exercises. These are gentle movements made by your therapist, meaning they gently stretch the area for you.
