Exercises

On this page, our Physiotherapists at Pure have worked collaboratively to compile a series of exercise rehabilitation plans which we recommend performing at home for help with your recovery.

 

The exercises are categorised in to different stages based on the current symptoms you are experiencing and the level of progress you have made in your recovery and rehabilitation journey.

 

The early exercise plan is designed to maintain soft tissue flexibility and joint mobility in the ankle. This plan also includes two very useful self-massage techniques which will support recovery. The intermediate programme focuses on loading the affected structures in functional positions, whilst implementing single leg balance to challenge intrinsic foot strength & lower limb stability – aiming to increase resilience. Finally, the advanced programme places greater load through the structures targeted and introduces dynamic & impact actions, similar to that required in recreational and high-level sport.

"I was told by a previous physio that nothing could be done for my ankle problem and I would never play football again. Having received expert treatment and by following a specific programme, I have returned to 5-a-side once a week."

"I have never had acupuncture before and I can't believe the difference it has made for my chronic back pain. I am now able to control the symptoms and have got back my normal life."

"I was referred to you via the GP on the NHS & you were able to contact me very soon, which was appreciated.
Your service was very professional, you called at the appointed time, you listened & responded. You emailed the specific exercises I need the same day. "
