Exercise Prescription

Exercise prescription is essential to ensure the successful rehabilitation of injured tissues and the prevention of future injuries.

Exercise prescription is an essential part of successfully rehabilitating and preventing lower limb injuries. Most lower limb injuries are caused through overuse such as increasing exercise frequency suddenly or having a period of deconditioning from sport and then starting back suddenly. This can result in tissue overload and the tissue being unable to adapt to the increased strain placed upon it, resulting in injury.

Our Specialist Musculoskeletal Podiatrists are experts at formulating bespoke plans to target weak and injured tissues and overall movement dysfunction that may be contributing to your injury.

Your tailored prescription will comprise of the following components:

  • Type of exercise
  • Intensity
  • Duration
  • Frequency
  • Rate of progression (when you should progress to the next stage)
  • Return to activity schedule
  • Footwear advice

Your Podiatrist will assess your tolerance to the exercises and demonstrate the correct techniques to ensure that you get full benefit from your programme. They will also monitor you throughout and reassess you at each follow up. Typically, patients will see results over 6 sessions of exercise prescription with our Musculoskeletal Podiatrist which usually take place at 1-2 week intervals.
