Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Physiotherapy is the only thing that can influence to improve the function of the damaged parts that has already been caused.

Rest of treatment is aimed at preventing future events / recurrence.
It includes strict control of your diabetes and blood thinners...
Regular follow up is a must

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
