Physical therapy uses specific exercises to assist in your recovery from an injury. We don’t waste time on exercise equipment like bikes and treadmills. Instead we focus on range of motion, strengthening, gait, balance and core stabilization exercises depending on your individual needs. These can all be done on land or in our therapeutic pool with a trained therapist guiding you.
Range of Motion: To get optimal joint function and muscle recruitment, we use gentle exercises to restore mobility.
Stretching: Tight muscles can cause more injury or pain, so stretching these tight muscles is necessary to make a full recovery.
Strengthening: Through the use of body weight, barbells, or exercise bands for resistance, we use a variety of methods to increase strength in areas of the body that are not performing at optimal capacity.
Balance: As we age or when we have an injury, we tend to hold our body differently which changes our center of gravity. Balance exercises are important to prevent falls and maintain independence.
Endurance: We use certain exercises and equipment to increase your cardiovascular endurance so you won’t get as tired with your everyday activities.
