Activity Modification

Changing what you do can have a dramatic effect on your pain. This can be a small change, such as how you climb the stairs (see physiotherapy below). More major modifications will include changing from jogging (a high impact sport) to cycling, which is low impact and causes less pain. Dr. Thornton-Bott will discuss these options with you, and your physiotherapist can advise and help you with these changes too.
