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 focus of the early exercise plan is to maintain soft tissue flexibility in the lower back, pelvis and hips using smooth and controlled motion. For the intermediate programme, exercises are selected to develop greater range of motion in the lower back and hips and to strengthen the buttock and thigh muscles, both with symmetrical and asymmetrical movement patterns. Finally, in the advanced plan, the emphasis is placed on developing single leg strength and stability with complex, whole body movements. Please bear in mind the advanced template is for those who require high levels of physical strength.

Ensure you pay attention to the specific level of the exercises you have been prescribed (early, intermediate or advanced) and view only those videos so that you perform the correct exercises.
Although these exercises are recommended by us, we advise that you liaise with your Physiotherapist before attempting any exercises you have not been recommended.
If you experience continual worsening of pain/symptoms whilst performing any prescribed exercises, we recommended that you stop and contact your Physiotherapist.
