Periods of bed rest cause decline in muscle strength which must be regained for recovery of function and return to full activities.

Similarly, musculoskeletal injury or surgery causes decline in muscle strength and change in function of the affected body part.

Physiotherapy management is a pivotal part of the journey to recovery following musculoskeletal injury or surgery.
