Answer

Physical therapy

After the patient's pain resolves and he or she has regained sufficient strength, therapy should be transitioned from the therapy office to the gym or home gym. The therapist should teach the patient a home gym or gym program, and the patient should perform stabilization and general training at least 3 times per week to prevent recurrence.
