Client education is a big part of the service that we can offer as physiotherapists. A lot of times, we would like to offer more education than we are able to in one single session, or even over multiple sessions. Thankfully, there are certain resources that we can make available to clients to learn more about how they can improve their pain and functionality., and also help remove painful triggers from their lifestyle.
