Therapeutic Exercise

Your Tailor-made Exercise Program

The performance of the prescribed therapeutic exercise program is one of the most important pieces to your rehabilitation process. I believe that by giving patient’s the proper know how and emphasizing ownership of their tailor-made program, patient’s will achieve their best results.

I am a firm believer in “perfect practice, makes perfect…” Consistent with that, is the time and attention I dedicate to my patients ensuring they understand what proper movement patterns feel like. This will ensure that they can recreate it on their own when performing home exercise programs or during sport performance.

What problems can benefit from Therapeutic Exercise?

Therapeutic exercises aim to give various benefits to athletes, people who have recently had surgery, people who have had an accident that restricts movement, and anyone who has issues with musculoskeletal functions. These benefits could include:

Recovery from sports-related injuries – injuries sustained during sports and other heavy-duty physical activities can be treated using exercises. Physical therapy can also be used to prevent injuries in athletes.

Reduction or elimination of pain – therapeutic exercises can also be used to help treat achy joints and painful muscles. Manual therapy techniques like soft tissue and joint mobilization can help relieve stiffness and pain and keep aches from returning.

So how does Therapeutic Exercise work?

A physical therapist begins by conducting a thorough evaluation of an individual’s physical capabilities through both a medical history and physical assessment. The physical therapist then uses his/her knowledge to shape a treatment care plan containing a slowly-progressing exercise program that is appropriate to each individual’s needs. The physical therapist monitors progress, assists with some physical movements and continuously modifies the plan as the client recovers.

The first objective of therapeutic exercise is to help the body reduce pain and inflammation. Once this is achieved, the exercise program focuses on regaining range of motion and rebuilding muscle strength and endurance.

What Our Clients Are Saying

 

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.
