Improve you core strength and stability with this Fit Tip from Dr. Riley.
One of the things as a patient when I go in to see my physician, I’m always interested like what can I do. I feel like so many times the physicians tell me what my problem is and then the treatment they’re going to recommend, obviously, but one of the biggest questions, I want to be accountable as a patient. I always, in my discussion with my physician, it’s like what can I do, what can I do at home? Are there any recommendations that you could make that could speed up my recovery or prevent it from coming back? Those are recommendations that I would make to you. Self-management strategies, activity modifications. I want to empower you as the patient to help yourself. Obviously, you’re here because something’s wrong, but if I could get you doing a few simple stretches at home or make some recommendations on sleep or ergonomics, things that would make you feel better throughout the day, I think that’s so very important to provide patients and you with those management strategies to help yourself.
