Benefits of scientifically correct exercises can extend to the most severe cases, thereby improving quality of life.

Mariq will assist the patient through the different “phases” of rehabilitation before and after surgery in order to achieve his or her pre-determined ( from assessment) goals. We progress patients through their prescribed exercises ensuring correct technique and functional movement.
