In brief: Breakdown

First we worry about getting your motion back.
Next we concentrate on building your base strength including your core. Next we start working on functional strength. The next stage is functionality and proprioception and finally endurance and sports specific activities.

In brief: Ask the expert...

Each patient's therapy is completely individualized so it is difficult to comment on this; best to ask the physical therapist for the best course of treatment for you!
