Why Choose Therapeutic Exercise
In some cases, therapeutic exercises have been shown to be just as effective as major surgery. Injuries such as meniscus tears can present a challenge because it is not always clear which is the best route to take in regards to physical therapy or surgery. However, a study done by the New England Journal of Medicine showed that physical therapy could be just as useful for an injury as major surgery. Avoiding major surgery can help prevent complications down the line that will not be present when choosing therapeutic exercise.
