Rehabilitative Exercise Therapy
What is Rehabilitative Exercise Therapy?
According to Dr. Jess Lieberman, therapeutic exercise is a series of motions prescribed to correct an impairment, improve musculoskeletal function, or maintain a state of well-being.
Therapeutic exercise seeks to accomplish the following:
Release contracted muscles, tendons, and fascia
Improve respiratory capacity
Improve muscle strength and, if possible, achieve and maintain maximal voluntary contractile force
Improve exercise performance and functional capacity (endurance)
How Does it Work?
Exercises are prescribed to stretch the injured or affected muscles and increase their flexibility, which in turn is effective for the treatment of pain.
What to Expect:
Dr. Strong or his physical therapist, Matthew, will develop a customized exercise program based on in-person assessment of your needs, and up-to-date research of the most effective treatment exercises. The exercise program’s pacing, specific exercises, and amount of practice with the physical therapist will vary depending on the condition and the individual’s needs.
- Restored range of motion, strength, and stability
