When Should I Start
For best results, and in most cases you should start your active therapy as soon as possible. However, that may not mean starting immediately after experiencing your injury. Sometimes the purpose of active therapy in the early recovery days is also to prevent de-conditioning elsewhere in your body before we can focus on the injured areas recovery.
Depending on your strength and the severity of your injury, you may have to complete some other steps toward your recovery first but we will be able to help direct you if this is appropriate.
Active therapy will be one of the most important things you will need to do for yourself and your recovery. During active therapy, you may be recommended to see other health professionals that can assist with your healing time or address other areas of concern that may be arising. Other treatments may include massage therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic services, occupational therapy or physiotherapy.
