Regular exercise is an important part of life. Exercise keeps us healthy. When an active individual suffers an injury, our body requires a specific exercise program of re-introduction and re-education for the affected soft tissues and skeletal structures to return from injury and optimize performance.
As part of your complete care, you will be prescribed an individualized, progressive therapeutic exercise program. Evidence indicates that adherence to a therapeutic exercise program can dramatically improve recovery and speed up return-to-activity.
Benefits of therapeutic exercise include:
- Improved range of motion
- Correcting muscle imbalance
- Reduced postural strain
- Reduced soft tissue tension
- Improved elasticity of soft tissue
- Reduced pain
- Accelerated healing
- Increased strength of soft tissues
