Hello
Sadly you are caught in a unenviable position. You are not a specialist, yet you are in a position where a client flagged that he has an issue and making mobility worse.
You have been put on notice sadly, thus I would suggest that he stop the regime at the moment. If you are able to speak with the physio? I find it concerning that there has not been anyone else to fill their place?
If so, advise them as to the issue.
