It is common for people to experience loss of function after an injury or surgery. Functional restoration and retraining helps patients regain independence and reduce future problems. Therapies are focused on exercises and education to help restore function and allow patients to resume normal activities at home, at work, or on the playing field.
What to expect
After an initial assessment, your therapist will develop a plan for achieving realistic goals. By performing the suggested therapeutic activities, and continuous reassessment, you should see improved balance, coordination, and strength.
As with all therapies, education is a key element in returning patients to full health. Our goal is to teach you how to incorporate these exercises into your everyday activities to help reduce fatigue and stress on their muscles, joints, and soft tissues.Exercises can include:
- Physioball training and stabilization
- Dynamic Lumbar Stabilization
- Stair climbing/steps
- Overhead reaching
