How many times have you sustained an injury, but get frustrated because your recovery has taken longer than expected?
How many times have you been to the physio, then a couple of weeks later complained that it doesn’t actually work?
But how many times did you take the time to do your exercises correctly? Or even do them at all?
This is known as non-adherence. Non-adherence to a home exercise program has been shown to be as high as 50-65% for general musculoskeletal conditions. Patients who do not comply with their prescribed exercises have been shown to demonstrate fewer positive outcomes long term, while research has shown that patients who adhere to their prescribed exercises are significantly better at achieving their goals and demonstrate a greater increase in physical function. Non-adherence can also result in the treating health professional believing that their current treatment is not effective and proceeding to unnecessarily modify their program.
The Team here at Vision is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals, so we have created a program called Bounce Back.
Bounce Back is designed to eleviate non-adherence by helping you become one of the 35-50% of patients that do their home exercise program and achieve their goals. This program will not only give you a time and place to do all your exercises that have been prescribed to you by your Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist, but will ensure that all your exercises are done correctly.
An Exercise Physiologist will then prescribe additional exercises to help improve your overall health to help you Bounce Back sooner. This program will require a Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist referral, so ask your treating health professional if this program is right for you.
