As a companion to other physical therapy modalities, therapeutic exercise is used to correct impairment, help restore and build physical strength, flexibility and stability. Once your therapist at Cahill Physical Therapy evaluates your condition and physical capabilities, a treatment plan is created that will include an exercise program tailored to your specific needs.
It may vary from highly selected activities restricted to specific muscles or parts of the body, to general and vigorous activities.
The goals of therapeutic exercise are to reduce pain and inflammation, regain strength, range of motion, endurance and restoration of function.
Cahill’s state-of-the-art clinic provides an ideal environment for your physical rehabilitation. Gyrotonic, Pilates, exercise balls, straps and bands are just some of the rehabilitation tools that may be included in your therapy plan.
All of your treatments, including therapeutic exercise, are carefully monitored and emphasize slow progression. Your program will be modified as your pain decreases and you begin to heal.
