We search the internet for rehabilitation protocols that appear free-of-charge and are considered in the public domain (ie. they appear on public search engines and public websites).

Physiotherapists and surgeons individualize their rehab protocols based on each patient’s presentation.   Just because you find a protocol online, does not mean it is safe for you to do.   Before following an online protocol, show it to your physiotherapist first. There is no ‘one size fits all’ protocol.

We do not host or endorse any protocol but instead provide a link to where the protocol authors have posted their protocol online.

The appearance of a protocol is for information purposes only and does not constitute as a treatment recommendation.

If you have any questions regarding any protocol,  please contact your physiotherapist, physician or surgeon.
