Gaining the best possible outcome from your physiotherapy treatment requires a little more than just doing your exercises. This brief guide for patients outlines some concepts that can really make a difference beyond your physiotherapist’s treatment.
Nobody comes to Physiosouth to learn mindfulness. Patients come because of a physical injury, e.g. a back problem, a knee problem etc. Our belief systems tell most of us that a physical injury of a certain degree or size causes a related amount of pain. Like injury X = X amount of pain, and injury Y = Y amount of pain. This is incorrect.
