Custom Therapeutic Exercise Programs Focus on Alignment, Posture and Structural Rehabilitation
Therapeutic exercises and rehabilitation are important parts of a treatment plan for many conditions and injuries. Treatment plans can be used effectively in helping injured workers return to the workforce, people suffering from arthritis, athletes return to their sport and people recovering from surgery.
Exercises may vary and change from patient to patient, but the goal is always the same. The aim of a rehabilitation program is to regain pre-injury levels in all aspects of physical fitness. A full rehabilitation and strengthening program is essential to ensure full recovery and to prevent further injury. These exercises sometimes include muscle stretching, joint mobility exercises or muscle strengthening exercises.
Correction of muscle imbalance problems around the shoulder, hip or knee are addressed effectively with exercise rehabilitation guided by a trained professional. Core stability muscles are also an important part of the treatment of chronic lower back pain.
