- comfortable clothing to exercise in. If possible wear a vest or short sleeved top, as we might need to look at your bare arms
During the session
At your first session, you can talk to the therapist about your aims and goals.
The group sessions have a circuit of exercises. You'll have your own programme of day-to-day tasks to practise.
The therapists will be there to help progress your exercises and make sure you use good quality movements.
It is important to do the exercises you are given every day at home to see improvements.
After your 6 sessions
When you have completed your 6 sessions, we recommend you continue with your exercises at home, every day. This will help maintain the improvements you made.
If you have any questions, please speak to your physiotherapist, doctor or nurse.
