How does Therapeutic Exercise work with mobile physical therapy?

The first objective of therapeutic exercise is to help the body reduce pain and inflammation. We tackle this objective by conducting a thorough evaluation of your physical capabilities through your medical history and a quick physical assessment, all done in the comfort of your home or office.


Next, we create a custom treatment care plan as part of your Home Health PT that builds a slowly-progressing exercise program that addresses your needs. We then monitor your progress, assist with the exercises, and modify your plan as you recover. Once we achieve this, we create an exercise program that is focused on regaining your range of motion while rebuilding muscle strength and endurance.

Hear what our patients have to say:

Eric Finger is one of the best if not the best physical therapists I have gone to. Eric treated me for a problem with my knee and for a lower back injury in 2017. I was very impressed with Eric’s diagnostic skills in determining the root cause of my pain and in determining very specific therapies and exercises to use. Eric was also very good at explaining things to me and educating me about physiology, the cause of my pain, and how the therapies worked to treat it. I felt well prepared to do the exercises he prescribed for me to do on my own (in between my therapy sessions). Eric was very encouraging, patient, answered all my questions and sought my honest feedback. My therapy was a success and I’m grateful that Eric was my therapist. Eric also equipped me with exercises to do to prevent and counter any reoccurrence. I highly recommend Eric for anyone in need of physical therapy.

Types of Therapeutic Exercises Used in Physical Therapy


Physical therapy is an important part of health care, and therapeutic exercises are a key component of it. Physical therapists can help you improve your mobility, strength, and overall physical function. By understanding the different kinds of exercises available to you, you can make sure you get the most out of your physical therapy sessions.


Passive Range of Motion

Passive range of motion (PROM) involves the therapist passively moving the patient’s joint through its full range of motion. PROM helps to improve joint mobility, reduce pain, and increase flexibility. The therapist will typically use their hands to move the joint in all directions, or they may use equipment such as an exercise ball or pulleys. This type of exercise is often used for patients who have recently undergone surgery or have limited mobility due to injury or illness. It is important to note that PROM should not be painful and should only be done under the guidance of a qualified physical therapist.


Active Range of Motion

Active range of motion (AROM) exercises are a type of physical therapy used to improve joint flexibility, strength and coordination. These exercises involve actively moving the body’s joints through their full range of motion with the assistance of a physical therapist. This type of exercise is beneficial for increasing the range of motion of a joint, reducing pain and muscle stiffness, increasing blood flow, and improving mobility. AROM exercises can also help improve coordination and balance by training the muscles around the joints to move in a smooth, coordinated manner. Examples of AROM exercises include using a resistance band to perform stretching exercises, performing arm circles or ankle pumps, or using a foam roller to massage out tight muscles.


Strengthening Exercises

These exercises can be done with weights, bands, or just the patient’s own body weight. They target specific muscles and are designed to improve muscular strength and coordination. Examples of strengthening exercises include squats, lunges, planks, and crunches. Therapists may also use electrical stimulation to help patients contract their muscles and encourage strength building. Strengthening exercises should be done in a slow and controlled manner so as not to injure the patient or cause further harm. With proper guidance and instruction, these exercises can help patients improve their strength and build a foundation for a healthier lifestyle.


Balance and Coordination Exercises

Balance and coordination exercises involve activities that help the body to develop neuromuscular control and coordination. Examples of these activities include standing on one leg for a set period of time, walking on an uneven surface, or using a therapy ball to practice balance and coordination skills. These exercises also help to improve proprioception, which is the body’s ability to sense where it is in space. The goal of balance and coordination exercises is to improve posture, reduce risk of falls, and increase overall strength and stability. It is important to remember that these exercises should be done under the supervision of a physical therapist as there is always a risk of injury when performing them.
