Here is an example of a typical rehabilitation exercise for your condition. Start the exercise slowly. Ease off the exercise if you start to have pain.
Your doctor or your physiotherapist or occupational therapist will tell you when you can start this exercise.
Follow-up care is a key part of your treatment and safety. Be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call your doctor or nurse call line if you are having problems. It's also a good idea to know your test results and keep a list of the medicines you take.
