What is 'supportive care'?

At this phase of treatment you are mostly out of pain however the muscles and ligaments haven’t completely strengthened up, you may still have some bad postural or movement habits, or the joints just haven’t quite got the idea yet!

You are given home exercises to correct these however you will need supportive treatment to maintain the corrections on a ‘phased out’ basis until it completely resolves and heals. We normally see people at intervals of 1-2 weeks, then 3-4 weeks, then 6 or 8 weeks until you reach a maintenance level.
