Therapeutic exercise has been a valuable and effective
tool in developing strength and endurance, range of motion
and flexibility. Our staff will help you perform specialized
exercises that will strengthen and stabilize the injured
area and allow the muscles and ligaments to heal properly.
We facilitate our therapeutic exercises through the use
of resistance bands, dumbbells, gymnic balls and the simple
use of our hands.
Therapeutic exercises can be performed by active care
(patient involvement) and/or passive care (non-patient
involvement). Properly performing exercises is a major
factor in the rehabilitation and recovery of any musculoskeletal
injury. In addition, active home exercises may be prescribed
to help patients stabilize specific muscles that tend to
be overused with the daily activities of home and work
life. Ergonomic tips will be given to help the patient
bend and lift correctly; furthermore, lumber cushions or
belts may be recommended for long-term maintenance.
